Keeping Businesses Busy
By Chris Comer
Happy New Year 2020! What a wonderful time of year to begin new memories and experiences in your favorite place around Kernersville!
Building relationships and working together is what we all do best. The community of Kernersville is like no other in the entire nation. Our businesses, civic organizations, non-profit groups and others make up this strong network that is offered by so many.
The Kernersville Chamber of Commerce is thankful to be a part of this strong and vibrant environment. Our businesses employ our community as well as bring people in to the area to purchase our commodities. They bring a sense of belonging and offer the opportunities to see high level business in action.
Our community offers hundreds of opportunities to shop local. It is an amazing thing to be able to say, “I don’t have to leave Kernersville for my everyday needs.” Shopping for loved ones has never been so fun and easy.
Business Networking is around every corner. There are networking groups for everyone. Don’t know where to start? The Kernersville Chamber is just a phone call away.
The upcoming year will not disappoint. Here is a list of events to look forward to:
- Lunch with Leaders Symposiums on “Onward Kernersville” the next community vision plan, and more exciting topics.

Volunteers are instrumental in the success of all that happens at the Chamber. With just under 20 committees and multiple events, there is something for everyone to share their talent. The Kernersville Christmas Parade, The Amanzi Marble and Granite Kernersville Spring Folly and the Annual FedEx Ground Kernersville Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament are all great opportunities to volunteer and build relationships.
We hope this year is your most prosperous yet! Please do not hesitate to reach out to your Kernersville Chamber of Commerce, 336.993.4521. We look forward to hearing from you!
