Thompson’s Store and Ward’s Grill to host Chamber After Hours

The next Chamber Business After Hours will be in Saluda, hosted at Thompson’s Store and Ward’s Grill, with SCORE co-sponsoring (Service Corps of Retired Executives). The date is April 26, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., and all Chamber members are invited to attend, as well as prospective members.

Thompsons Store is an historic grocery store, the oldest in North Carolina, and Wards Grill is a 1950s era diner that has a great burger and has been a popular place for years. Judy Ward invites you to come and enjoy some refreshments and network your business at her establishments, along with SCORE’s Bill Kerns, who will talk about how they offer free services to boost your business plan.

Bring your business cards and a door prize to share for more exposure. RSVP is required by calling the Chamber at 828-859-6236 or emailing janet@carolinafoothillschamber.com.
