The Knightdale Chamber of Commerce recently held its quarterly Red Ribbon Showcase, a group ribbon-cutting ceremony for new small businesses that have joined the chamber.
Recognized were Robbi Laney of Mutual Omaha; Ashley Veglahn of Hook Line & Threader; Raushawna Price of John Maxwell Leadership Coach; Sheila Lassiter of The DA GENIE LLC; and Catherine Tankersley of C&A’s Tailor Shop.
Ribbon-cutting ceremonies for grand openings are common benefits for chamber members, but some businesses – like those operating out of homes – don’t have a storefront.
“The Red Ribbon Showcase is a revitalized chamber event designed to provide members without a storefront the opportunity to benefit from a ribbon-cutting ceremony,” said Patrice Bayyan, executive director of the Knightdale Chamber. “Entrepreneurs, independent businesspeople, very small businesses and home-based businesses participate … to ensure that they are able to capitalize on the exposure offered by a public ribbon-cutting event.”
At the event, businesses have a chance to talk about and display their products and services.
