We’ve spent more time at home than ever before, and people are widely making home improvements to spruce or sell – as well as adopting pets (or spending more time with current furry friends)!
Combine the two trends and you’ve got it all, featured at the Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce’s Home Show & Pet Expo on Saturday, June 19th, from 10:00am until 3:00pm, outside the Oxford Valley Mall in Langhorne.
It’s been a long year of social distancing and this event will provide a safe venue and opportunity for local businesses to join together, network and continue growing as a community.
“We’re very excited about this event and the businesses involved in our community,” says Minesh Pathak, Executive Director of LBCCC. “Our members are eager to make new connections and grow their business.”
LBCCC hosted a ‘Spring Fling Mingle’ this April and continues to hold monthly Zoom meetings, including events such as “Coffee and Connections,” an opportunity to share a virtual cup of coffee while networking.
“The Chamber has weathered this turbulent storm and pivoted in a different direction,” says Jude Martin-Cianfano, Director of Events and Membership. “We’re now hybrid!”
LBCCC is excited to come together on June 19th, with a focus on home contractors and all things pet-related! They will continue to follow all safety precautions set in place by the CDC and state guidelines.
“We’ve noticed a lot of people who hadn’t previously been able to attend networking events have been able to join us virtually,” says Minesh.
Now, they are welcoming the local community to come out and show their faces, to celebrate pets and homes in a new light.
Spending so much time at home has people re-evaluating their living space.
The Home Show & Pet Expo will support our local economy, offering the community a safe way to grow connections the way we have all been yearning to do.
If you are interested in being a vendor, please reach out to LBCCC at 215-943-7400 – space is limited! Any member of staff is available to help you.
“Good businesses make good communities,” Jude reminds us. Local businesses provide a backbone to our community; now is time to support and join together.
