SEFFNER — The Greater Seffner Chamber of Commerce will host Business Expo 2013 at the North Brandon Family YMCA on Thursday (Oct. 24) from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The event is open to the public and is a way for the chamber to showcase the many businesses available to residents right in Seffner. Some 50 booths will be set up to showcase everything from local restaurants to hair studios, business-related companies, security and more.
The Y is located at 3097 S. Kingsway Road, Seffner.
“This is what we call ‘loving our locals.’ We want to encourage people to do business with the locals here in Seffner,” said newly elected Chamber President Meredith Tucker, a team leader at the BB&T bank branch. “Why go to Brandon or Tampa when you can get what you need right here in your home town?”
In addition to area jewelers, nursing home operators and auto repair businesses, several non-profits sponsored by the chamber will also have booths, including the Y.
Participants will receive cards with the name of each business noted on it. By visiting each booth at the expo and getting the card stamped, visitors can enter the drawing for a Kindle Fire.
“That’s our way of encouraging people to visit every booth,” Tucker said.
Admission in to the expo is free and refreshments will be served.
