No store does more than our Leander HEB

2021-03-05T13:37:38-06:00

During the recent ice and snow storm, Leander HEB was among one of the many stores to aid in the impact the conditions had on Texans. When the power went out, the store gave away groceries instead of returning them to the shelves…this is just the way we do things around here!

Check out the NY Times story on them. We love our HEB!

COVID-19 Update: Governor Reopening Business & Lifting Mask Mandate

2021-03-02T15:23:16-06:00
Governor Greg Abbott today issued an Executive Order (GA-34) lifting the mask mandate in Texas and increasing capacity of all businesses and facilities in the state to 100 percent.
“With the medical advancements of vaccines and antibody therapeutic drugs, Texas now has the tools to protect Texans from the virus,” said Governor Abbott. “We must now do more to restore livelihoods and normalcy for Texans by opening Texas 100 percent. Make no mistake, COVID-19 has not disappeared, but it is clear from the recoveries, vaccinations, reduced hospitalizations, and safe practices that Texans are using that state mandates are no longer needed.

Testimonial – Why Join the Leander Chamber?

2020-12-17T15:46:38-06:00
“I wish I had joined the Leander Chamber of Commerce when I first moved to Leander.  I had no idea how many contacts I would make and how helpful the Chamber is to local businesses.  Not only did my business benefit from the exposure but I am able to rely on businesses within the chamber for most of my own business needs.  I like being able to “shop and buy” local.  I trust the businesses that are listed in the Chamber and love being able to refer my own clients to many of those businesses.  The Chamber provides a real sense of community but still retains that small town appeal that drew most of us to this area.  The […]

Getting the Most Out of Your Membership

2020-07-06T12:23:56-05:00

After starting his brand new business in 2012, Steve Reilly of ReillyCo Advertising asked himself questions like, “Where should I spend my resources?” and “How much time do I have to devote?”

After deciding to join the Leander Chamber in 2013, though Leander was small and much fewer members than the Austin Chamber that he had previously been involved in, Reilly recognized the “vision or ‘mojo’” Leander had for the future of business and supporting members.

Flash forward 7 years, Reilly’s advice for how to get the most out of your membership begins with setting a realistic goal of what you expect to bring to the chamber. He believes “you have to give to get” and the key to networking is about […]
