Greater Centralia Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Bob Kelsheimer is pleased with the results of this weekend's home show. While exact attendance figures are not yet available, he feels they are comparable to last year.
"The exhibitors were real pleased. They had a lot of people come by and ask for estimates. A lot of the vendors that were selling things here said they did an outstanding job, so they're coming back. All and all, it was really good. Sunday was a really good day for us, better than it was last year, so we're real pleased", said Kelsheimer.
Kelsheimer says they'll now review comments and suggestions from this year's exhibitors. "To get ideas, we always have our exhibitors turn in evaluation sheets and they give us some good ideas. We'll take a look at that and we're always looking to refresh the show and there will be some new things next year", said Kelsheimer.
The home show sold out this year, with 50 exhibitors participating.
