Aynor chamber seeks to bring more business to town

AYNOR, SC (WMBF) - Aynor Mayor Keb Johnson tells WMBF News eight businesses have set up shop in town in just the past year, and most of them on 8th Avenue.

Plus with PTR Industries announcement, the town is getting a lot of attention. Now the Aynor Area Chamber of Commerce is coming together to take a more focused approach on business.

Aynor's chamber has existed for several decades, but with new leadership and new interest, there are new efforts starting to boost the local economy. Those involved want to start by making area businesses more visible to the community. This will be through different ways, including more business-related events, encouraging people to shop locally, and by restructuring the chamber's website.

Town leaders believe if they can get business to grow, then the town will grow too. Chamber President and local business owner Sandra Page tells me the goal is to show Aynor isn't a town you just drive through on Highway 501, but it's actually more of a destination.

"From Florence to Myrtle Beach, or Marion to Conway, we have a lot of great things to offer," said Page. "All of those that are passing through as well as live here."

The new chamber efforts aren't only for the town of Aynor, but also some surrounding areas-- like Galivants Ferry, Dogbluff, and the Midlands. The community can expect to start seeing business oriented chamber events happening every month.
