Upcoming Eldon Events

Coupon/Discount Program - NEW!

The Eldon Area Chamber of Commerce would like to add even more value to being a Chamber member by developing a Coupon/Discount Program!

This program would promote your products/services by increasing traffic and revenue to your business. A coupon card will be provided to chamber members and their employees which would refer customers to the Chamber website, where your business is featured as a Chamber member, to find out what special deals are being offered.

If you are interested in participating and/or have any questions, please contact Erik Svoboda at erik@krantzinsurance.com.
