Chamber Happenings This Week – March 17, 2023

Mother Nature is Not Being Nice to Us

I want to thank all of our Vendors and people who attended the Flavor of Duncanville last night. The weather kept several folks at home and our attendance was down. But in speaking to several vendors they said they were pleased and made some good connections. So we avoided severe weather but the weathermen scared people to stay in their homes.

We also had to cancel Duncan Switch once again due to cold weather and winds. But we are having the Little Caesars “Love Kitchen” coming to the Chamber this Saturday from 11:00-1:30 to give away some FREE Pizza to the Community. Thanks to Mahesh Vankawala for his donation of giving back to our citizens. See you on Saturday.

Keeping Dollars in Duncanville

While we are all still trying to find our “new normal” in our personal lives and for our businesses, it is important that we try and shop locally and keep our local businesses as healthy as possible.

We have created a new section on the Duncanville Chamber website that will be continually updated and will include changes in operating hours, any specials and new information.

The pages for this section will include:

The Duncanville Chamber of Commerce does have member businesses from other cities as well (Dallas, DeSoto, Cedar Hill, etc.)

If you would like more information on how to be included, please contact the Duncanville Chamber of Commerce at 972-780-4990 or through our contact us page.
