The second annual Cranbrook Business Walk was held Tuesday, June 28 with 15 teams of canvassers spreading out throughout the community for a three-hour period.

“At first blush just talking to the canvassers at the post walk event it appears the economy in Cranbrook is doing well,” said Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce Executive Director David D. Hull.  “We will immediately start tabulating the data and expect to release the first batch of reporting in early September.”

“With 18 questions per survey, many with multiple response sections, it is a mountain of data to input and then the analysis begins,” said Hull.  “This year the data will be far more meaningful as we can overlay it with last year’s data and provide reporting with significantly more substance.”

The Cranbrook Business Walk program is a partnership with the City of Cranbrook, Community Futures East Kootenay, the Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce and the Provincial Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training.
