• Alhambra Business Update


    by Winston Chua

    A new Volkswagon dealership is slated to arrive across thestreet from where the Fossilman’s ice cream parlor is located, on the northside of Main Street,according to Alhambra Chamber of Commerce executive director Owen Guenthard.The property and sale have been approved through the city. Volkswagon is not astroubled as General Motors or Ford and is in the midst of expansion.

    Businesseshave been impacted by the economic slowdown, although Guenthard said there havebeen no major closings. Target, Costco and the Home Depot appear to be doingfairly well and able to avoid massive layoffs, even though those companies haveslowed down nationally. Guenthard said that for companies with extra money, nowis the best time to start a new business.

    Localrestaurants continue to offer package deals, where children’s menus have avariety of options for under two dollars. Several restaurants have cut costs byeliminating extra shifts or abandoning the chamber’s membership altogether. Businesseswho wish to promote or share what is new in their development are encouraged tomeet with the chamber each Friday morning of the month at 8 a.m. for just $5.These meetings are used to introduce themselves to the chamber and also buildnetworking bridges between existing businesses. They meet in Alhambra’s Almansor Court.
