Blog, Local Life and Business
In preparation for the 10th Annual Small Business Saturday on November 30, and as a regular service to county businesses, Tehama County Economic Development is raising awareness about area shops and local businesses. We are using the organization’s website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn pages to bring awareness to our incredible small business community, and opportunities to support them. These posts and articles are intended to encourage consumers to support small, local and independent businesses on this shopping holiday instead of spending money online or in big box stores.
The simple act of contributing to these businesses stimulates the local economy. When consumers make a purchase at a local business, the money spent goes right back into the community and tax dollars go toward local needs. Tehama County Economic Development’s goal is to ensure this happens.
When new businesses come to town, Tehama County Economic Development reaches out to them, welcomes them to the community and offers to assist them in getting the word out about their services.
Recently, Amanda Jenkins, Job Development Coordinator for Tehama County Economic Development, contacted a new business in town, Makery 1900, in hopes of welcoming them to the area and providing assistance. She also arranged for an article featuring the new business to be published in order to raise awareness about their services to the community.
Andrea Emerick, owner of Makery 1900, was touched by the interaction.
“It was a pleasure working with Amanda and Tehama County Economic Development earlier this year to help get the word out about our new furniture and decor business along with the workshops we offer. Amanda truly cares about our small community and local businesses; her passion and involvement in the community is unique. She’s the kind of person who reaches out, is instantly personable, and helps get the word out about the local stuff with professionalism and excitement,” Emerick says.
This is just one example of the tangible support Tehama County Economic Development offers members of the community. The organization also publishes a quarterly newsletter with updates on what’s happening in the area, what new businesses are coming to town and any other changes that the community would want to know about.
For those interested in opening a business in the county, Tehama County Economic Development is an important connection to have. The organization provides hopeful new businesses with several tools to make the transition easier. On the Tehama County Economic Development website, business owners can find a list of business incentives, available properties, a checklist for opening a new business and other helpful resources.
