As the holiday season approaches, the spirit of giving and community comes to the forefront of our minds. One of the most meaningful ways to celebrate this season is by supporting local businesses, and a great place to start is with Wayzata Area Chamber Members.
SHOP AND ENJOY: We are lucky to have an abundance of great local shops and restaurants in the area. Stop in and find a gift for yourself or that special someone! Or purchase a gift card for a fun night out. You can start shopping local at our Eat, Drink, And Be Merry event on Thursday, November 16. Learn more here >>

NOMINATE: Receiving good service and kindness should be celebrated, especially during the busy holiday season. If you received exceptional service, help us recognize the business/organization and nominate them for an award! We asked our past award recipient Ameristar Agency how this recognition made an impact.
We take pride in what we do for our clients and it’s nice to be recognized for it. As a business we are not big promoters of ourselves and this was an opportunity to get out there and be noticed. Exceptional Service Awards show local businesses that the quality of the service they provide matters. Its important as a community we continue to place value on not just doing a job or providing a service but to strive to perform that in a special way where ever possible. – Matt Shadow, Ameristar Agency
