There are many ways to become involved in Old Town and the Pocatello & Chubbuck community. Getting your business' name out and becoming involved doesn't have to cost a fortune. It just takes time and effort. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Get to know your neighbors - walk along the blocks surrounding your business and introduce yourself and your business. Hand out business cards, brochures, menus, and if you'd like offer an "Old Town Neighbor Special" to get your neighbors in to visit your store.
Join the Chamber of Commerce and start networking - the Chamber of Commerce is located in Old Town and they understand the needs of small businesses. Becoming a member has many advantages including the opportunity to network at monthly events including the General Membership Lunch on the first Friday of each month, Business After Hours on most Thursdays, and there's more. Give John Azzola, Membership Director, a call at 208-233-1525, and he will stop by and introduce you to all of the benefits of becoming a member of the Greater Pocatello Chamber of Commerce.
Become a First Friday Art Walk stop - this monthly event draws hundreds through your door with very little cost.
Join an Old Town Pocatello Committee - there are three Old Town committees welcoming new members who are excited about sharing their expertise and committing time to work in a hands on way to create and work on the direction of Old Town Pocatello.
The Design Committee (landscaping, building appearance, streetscape, public spaces. public art) meets on the second Thursday of each month at 5:30pm at the Old Town Office, 420 N. Main St. Ben Ledford is the Chair of this committee.
The Promotions Committee (events, marketing, PR, advertising) meets on the first Monday of every month at Noon at the Old Town Office, 420 N. Main St. Jane Warnock, First Friday Art Walk Coordinator, is the Chair of this committee.
Relight the Night Committee (saving our historic neon signs) meets every other month throughout the year. Randy Dixon is the Chair of this committee. Randy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this committee.
If you have an interest in joining one of our committees, please attend a meeting or email email@example.com and indicate which committee you'd like to join. We'll get you added to the email list for that committee and you'll be invited to upcoming meetings.
Come to the Old Town events and meet the community - bring your friends and family, too. Wear a name tag or a shirt with your comany name on it, and be sure to have business cards handy.
