Message from the President & CEO
Wow! I'd like to take a moment to thank all the businesses who have taken the Safety & Cleanliness Pledge we talked about last week in my letter. The list grows every day, and it is a beneficial way to market to your consumers that you care about their wellbeing. If you have not taken the pledge, you can click here to fill out the form. Your business name and website will be added to the list we've compiled at LodiChamber.com.
This week also marks a change to the Lodi Certified Farmers Market. While we are saddened we cannot come to Downtown Lodi just yet, we are excited to announce a change in hours to better service our community. As people started going back to work, we heard the call to move the morning market- that was beneficial during the Shelter in Place phase- to the evening. As of this Thursday, the Lodi Certified Farmers Market will run 5PM - 8PM at 267 N. Mills Ave. Thank you to our sponsors and our hosts at First Baptist Church for being flexible as we navigate these uncharted waters with you. And to the community- thank you for your voicing your opinions in such an impactful manner. Our farmers and vendors want to serve the community in the best way possible, and we feel this time change will do just that.
In closing, we have a Business Recovery Survey we'd like you to take. Lisa Craig from the Lodi Historical Society has put together these questions to best inquire how we- as the Lodi District Chamber of Commerce- can help local businesses moving forward whether it be through promotion or connecting your business to programs or resources.
