In the absence of a particular brand failing or a dramatic price disparity from a branded competitor, consumers would continue to purchase the same brands week after week, month after month, year after year.From the PresidentMany in our membership celebrated Easter this past weekend. Spring has certainly provided much to celebrate like the new Lewisville home of Seven Loaves Catering, Neighborhood Credit Union's new home in Highland Village (ribbon cutting this coming Thursday at 5pm), hosting the President of The Texas Association of Business as the keynote speaker for our monthly luncheon on April 25 and continued preparations for the Denton County Women Leading Business Conference and Expo which will take place on May 31.Be sure to stay in touch with all things Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce by liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter and subscribing to our YouTube channel.
