Hubbard promotes itself as a great place for business



Published: Fri, August 13, 2010 @ 9:35 p.m.

HUBBARD — A two-pronged effort in the city urges residents to support local businesses.

The Hubbard Area Chamber of Commerce “promotes economic growth of existing businesses and development of new businesses.” The nonprofit organization has worked toward its goal since it was formed in 1948.

Hubbard Alliance, recently formed, is a casual organization of local contractors who encourage use of local professionals who live and work in the Hubbard area.

“We don’t have a lot of big chain stores. Most are family owned and operated,” said Deborah Shields, executive director of the Hubbard chamber.

Shopping at local businesses should be a priority, she said. “These businesses survive by their reputation and repeat business.”

By supporting the local businesses, she said, residents are helping to support the city itself, which gets a city income tax.

“This makes your town better,” she added.

"Hubbard Alliance, recently formed, is a casual organization of local contractors who encourage use of local professionals who live and work in the Hubbard area." ...Always, I repeat always check a contractor's Better Business Bureau rating at bbb.org. A recent check of one of these contractors revealed an "F" rating. You have to try really hard to achieve an "F".
