    10-1-15 The “Here for You” program in Langley is helping the town become known as a fun place to shop

    Langley has long had a reputation as a charming tourist community, a fun place to wander, look out at the waterfront and maybe have something to eat.

    All of that is still true, but the Langley merchants are increasingly able to promote the concept of a business community that offers a variety of retail stores.

    In the spring, the Mayor’s office, the Langley Chamber of Commerce and Langley Main Street Association came together to promote “Here for You.”

    The concept for the program is simple: Each business provides the days and hours of operation, which are published on the Langley Chamber website and are available in a brochure distributed at the Chamber office.  In addition, they can obtain a “Here for You” sign to put in the window that posts the hours of operation.  There is no cost to the business for being involved in “Here for You.”

    Most importantly, by participating in this simple program, Langley businesses are demonstrating they are each members of a business community.  Shoppers enjoy coming to a business community rather than just visiting a single store for a specific purchase (hence, the success of shopping centers).

    The second edition of this brochure has just been published, and there are now 75 businesses participating.  Come to Langley, wander around and visit the stores.
