With businesses opening back up and observing various safety precautions, implementing new procedures, and keeping the health of Waxahachie in mind, the Waxahachie Chamber of Commerce has announced it will open its physical office again to visitors, while continuing to observe social distancing.

The chamber worked around the clock supporting local business members and nonmembers alike during the shelter in place, providing resources, education and promotional opportunities – proving once again how relevant chamber membership is during these times.

With a tremendous audience of well over 20,000 in total between its membership and online following – the Waxahachie Chamber of Commerce remains one of the most powerful community leader organizations making a difference for local business in Ellis County.

During the shelter in place, the chamber turned its efforts to largely virtual and online support for local business and kept everyone connected and small business supported during a time when it would have been so easy to disconnect.

Now, the Waxahachie Chamber is focusing its efforts on supporting local business through our #hachierebound – encouraging everyone to especially focus their support on local restaurants and “mom and pops” that have so much to do with making Waxahachie the special town that it is.

Waxahachie Chamber president and CEO Sandy King says, “Right now the Waxahachie Chamber is navigating the complicated process of reopening the business community. We are working to spread the word that the economy is not the antithesis of public health. Both can co-exist safely and prosperously together. Waxahachie is open for business and we hope to make sure businesses owners and citizens know that they will find an open door and open hearts at the chamber. We stand ready to support and uplift Waxahachie as we rebound from COVID-19.”

Here’s a word from chamber member Nicole Almaguer, owner of True Reflection-Skin Professionals, located in downtown Waxahachie:

“I started my business in December of 2018 and officially opened in January of 2019 here in Ellis County. I felt Ellis County, specifically Waxahachie, Texas, was the perfect place to bring in a holistic skin spa because of the openness to small town support of holistic wellness. I am proud to say I was right! My family has been such a huge part of this transition and I honestly thrive because of all their love and support! My favorite part about what I do is being able to relax others and help guide them on their journey to inner and outer healing. As an active member, I’m able to say that the Waxahachie Chamber is as supportive as they are involved with the members’ success, as much as you allow. My husband and I have another business that’s involved with the Waxahachie Chamber; it’s just as successful if not more with the assists used. The communication and exposure with that business is just as thorough for both businesses. There’s always an opportunity to get exposure with all the tools they provide. I am very happy I decided to join several months ago. Since joining the Waxahachie Chamber, I have been able to have an extra stream of exposure and my expectations have been satisfied with everything their team provides!”
