After almost 120 years of service, Rossland’s Chamber of Commerce has closed it’s doors. The chamber has agreed that they are in favour of merging with Trail’s chamber and the silver city members will make their final decision April 7 at 7 p.m..
“My understanding is that the Rossland chamber felt that it was better for the membership to merge with the Trail chamber and that together they could be a stronger force and provide better services to the membership,” said councillor and chamber liasion Marten Kruysse.
This decision also stems from a lack of membership renewal and overall support from within the business community.
Kruysse said that many services will likely continue over if the merger goes through. Things such as dental, health care, etcetera.
He believes the merger is “99 per cent” finished and it’s just a matter of Trail’s official decision on Wednesday night.
The Greater Trail chamber is expected to become much stronger as a result.
