Minot Area Chamber of Commerce preparing for the new, updated map of the area

The Minot Area Chamber of Commerce is once again offering an opportunity for business owners to market their businesses by working with the Minot Daily News, a chamber member, to publish 10,000 copies of the up-to-date street map of the area.

This is the official and only map endorsed by the chamber and will be distributed to customers over a 12-month period, beginning January 2018.

As we prepare for this year’s official city map, the chamber and the Minot Daily News have learned that a company called The City Press in Peoria, Illinois, is making calls in the area to promote its map and indicated that it is working with the chamber. We believe this is false and misleading.

They may be working with a chamber somewhere, but it isn’t the Minot Area Chamber of Commerce. If you are spending money advertising on a city map, please make sure it is the official map produced by the Minot Area Chamber of Commerce.

A special feature of this map is the Business Showcase Directory of Chamber members. This is a directory which will classify participating businesses by category, including a brief description of the products and/or services offered. In addition, the back cover and a limited number of interior panels are available for advertising to give businesses even greater exposure and positioning for businesses. These four-color advertisements are traditionally in high demand, so orders will be taken on a first come, first serve basis.

Be sure to take advantage of this unique member opportunity. Put your business on the chamber’s printed map.

A Minot Daily News representative will be contacting chamber members in the next three to five weeks, referring to this project as the “Minot Area Chamber Map Project.” You may also contact the Minot Daily News directly at 857-1963.

Thank you in advance to those who participate in this project. In addition to promoting your business, you allow the chamber to distribute the maps at no cost to residents, newcomers or visitors.
