Summer, Summer, Summer

Summer, Summer, Summer

There’s nothing better than the beginning of summer. I love making vacation plans (ComicCon anyone?) and spending time out-and-about in the evening while the sun’s still up (don’t give me a hard time DeKriek). Summer doesn’t just bring a change of weather, but a change in the economy as well. Our spending shifts to vacations, paying for the AC that’s running more and more, and the price of gasoline goes up. While most folks are out on vacation, it’s easy to see how economic output drops. However, the job force is typically flooded with high school and college students looking for seasonal employment. While part-timers are getting jobs, factories typically shut down for retooling for new models (so we can see shiny new 2018’s at the Cerritos Auto Square!). Construction typically gains ground and tourism – from both domestic and international tourists – peaks in July and August (when 22% of all international tourists come stateside). Whatever you do this summer – whether it’s a “stay-cation” or a trip across the nation – you will be contributing to this strange seasonal economy.

Speaking of summer…it’s not summer until the Chamber has our Summer Mixer at The Grove at Cerritos (used to be Vintage Cerritos). The folks at The Grove always have a great spread of delicious food and wine chilled to perfection to enjoy on their beautiful patio. I just arranged for perfect Chamber of Commerce weather, we’re talking mid-70’s, so it will be a lovely evening to make new contacts and visit with old friends. Let me know if you’re going to make it!

I hope you have a great weekend!

Peace,

Scott
