The Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce Home, Garden and Business Show takes place March 15 and 16.

The 2013 Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce Home, Garden and Business Show rolls into town this coming weekend, offering enthusiasts access to dozens of local service providers.

Event organizer Cheryl Leukefeld said with 36 vendors set up inside Aggie Hall and fencing and shed contractors set up outside, “it’s going to be a great couple of days.”

This year’s show will connect visitors with representatives from the Town of Ladysmith, the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce, Home Hardware, Bayview Framing and Art, Sundeck Centre, Valley Carpet One Floor and Home, E & S Heating, Classic Cutlery, Tidal Blinds, Golden Maples Farm, Restacon Services, Mid-Island Granite, Telford’s Burial and Cremation Centre and over two dozen other retailers, contractors and service providers. Pest control experts, realtors, painting contractors, service clubs and mortgage providers round out the list of groups and companies participating in the show.

In short, the show offers “a little bit of everything,” Leukefeld said, along with a guarantee that would-be visitors will find answers to all of their home-related questions.

“For people who have just moved into the community, this is a great place to come in, have a look around, see what’s available and talk to the people that they’re going to be seeing on a daily basis,” Leukefeld said. “I think this is a really good way to get to know who works in and contributes to the town. It’s quite amazing when you talk to some of these people how involved they are in the community.”

Leukefeld said she anticipates the show selling out, as it offers businesses “great exposure” for half the price of trade shows in Nanaimo and Duncan, all while showcasing their wares with an equally professional level of presentation.

“Pacific West Displays is setting it up,” Leukefeld said, “and they do all the big trade shows in Duncan and Nanaimo.”

The Home, Garden and Business Show serves as a fundraiser for the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce, Leukefeld said.

“The Chamber does a lot of things to bring businesses to the forefront in the community,” Leukefeld added, “and I think the Chamber should be applauded for putting this together. It takes a lot of work. Their staff is very, very good. Anybody that has questions or that comes into the community and wants to know what to do or who to go to for different things can always go into the Chamber office and the girls will be pleased to tell them who to see or who to talk to.”

The show is “free to attend,” Leukefeld said, “and anyone is welcome to come down.”

The 2013 Home, Garden and Business Show runs from 2 to 8 p.m. Friday, March 15 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 16 at Aggie Hall. For more information on this year’s show, contact the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce at 250-245-2112.
