Chamber Business of the Week: Black Hills Laundry and Dry Cleaning

After selling Sowers Sanitation, Sowers thought Belle Fourche could support a dry cleaning business since the town already had two drop stores for dry cleaning businesses in Spearfish.

Black Hills Laundry & Dry Cleaning was one of only four dry cleaning businesses in the Northern Black Hills at the time. As of 2016 it is the only dry cleaning business in the northern Black Hills.

 When asked what sets his business apart, Sowers described it as having “an emphasis on quality and dependability, with great employees that live this as well.”
 

Black Hills Laundry & Dry Cleaning currently employs 10 people at the dry cleaning plant and laundromat in Belle Fourche, and nine others at the Spearfish and Sturgis locations.

 Sowers stated that his goal for Black Hills Laundry & Dry Cleaning in the community is to “own and operate a store whose primary concern is the highest quality of customer service and satisfaction.” And that, “It is imperative for the owners, managers and employees to commit to these goals. The foundation of which will be to provide honest and reliable service and work for the customer, to the employee and the employer.

“We pledge to be an example of new and aspiring businesses in Belle Fourche, Spearfish, Sturgis and the entire Northern Black Hills," he said.

Belle Fourche Country Club Ribbon Cutting

 

BFCC_Patio_Open_House

If you haven't had a chance yet, stop by and enjoy the new patio addition at the Belle Fourche Country Club. A huge thank you goes out to the Belle Fourche Country Club board and the social committee for the completion of the project. In addition, thank you to the club members who participated in all the social committee events hosted to make this project possible. Club improvements continue to be the focus for all Social Committee events.

The handcrafted, timber frame was built by the Axe and Chisel Homestead, operated by TR and Bethany Hill. The project could not have been completed without the countless number of volunteer hours from both members and non-members of the club. Thank you to all board members, social committee members, and community members who came to support the ribbon cutting!

From the Director...

Are You A Planner?

DirectorGaryWood 

 It’s been a great year for Belle Fourche business and the Chamber of Commerce.  Activities designed to hit our targets have been revived or added this year.  There are more to come!

Beginning in September and running through the end of October, the Chamber is hosting an all new fall event aimed to bring business to our community and extending our activities into the fall here in Belle Fourche.  As a Chamber member you can get in on the events by going to www.blackhillsfallflavors.com and registering your business event.  If you need help designing your event advertising or more information about the focus of Fall Flavors feel free to call our Director at the Chamber office.

One of the Chamber’s targets is to:  TARGET BETTER BUSINESS PRACTICES and we can do that by being better planners.

We at the Chamber are doing all we can to keep you informed, and we will do our best to get the info to you early so that you can plan.  Planning is a key for your businesses success.  I had a work associate that didn’t like to plan but by the time we finished working together after nearly three years he was finally talking about “planning”.

I am a planner and like to have my “ducks in a row” as best as I can.  That is how we will run your Chamber as well.  Help us help you by planning to:

  • Read our newsletter, website and Facebook and responding accordingly.
  • Respond to our email inquiries for information from you.
  • Call us if you need information or have questions.  That is why we are here.
  • Ask others to join the Chamber.  We are 192 strong presently but need more to join if we are to be financially stable.
  • Get us your business information so that we can answer inquiries from those visiting or moving to the area.  Please update the Chamber with any email; phone, address or any other changes.

I have been amazed by the number of new people moving to Belle Fourche and the Belle Fourche area.  If you have never moved to a new area, let me tell you,  it can be challenging.  My wife and I moved here eight years ago but knew only our daughter, and we were building a house.  I really needed “local wisdom” about what contractors, lumber yards etc. to use.  I did my best from afar to get my “ducks in a row” but failed in some areas because I didn’t have the right connections.  Plan to make connections by attending the Chamber Coffee on Tuesday mornings, the Chamber Luncheon on Wednesdays at noon, or attend a Chamber mixer or business open houses.

Your Chamber is here to provide that connection between you, your customers, and other businesses.  Many people come to the Chamber of Commerce for information on businesses and our area.  When they come in we give them the information that we have or know.  It behooves us to get to know each other.  I’ll be coming around but feel free to stop by the Chamber and introduce yourself or call and ask me to stop by to get to know you.  I would very much welcome those kinds of calls.

Sincerely,

Gary Wood
Executive Chamber Director
