Esquimalt business fair open to public

Archie Browning Arena set to host event Sept. 24

Esquimalt businesses are starring in an upcoming fair spearheaded by the Esquimalt Chamber of Commerce.

The chamber, which has 104 members from throughout Greater Victoria, last organized a commerce fair in 2004.

This time the event is designed to have a more festive air, complete with musicians and door prizes.

“The chamber has designed this day to increase awareness and visibility of Esquimalt as a viable business centre, and showcase all that our local business community has to offer,” Tania Dyck, chamber administrative assistant, wrote in a release.

Residents are invited to attend for free to peruse a number of Esquimalt industries, retail outlets and home-based businesses.

The event includes a hiring fair.

The business fair happens Sept. 24, from noon to 7 p.m. at the Archie Browning Sports Centre, 1151 Esquimalt Rd. For info, call 250-590-2125.
