Bet on Cerritos

I’ve been thinking of what to write this week since last weekend. It’s not that I have writer’s block, it’s more about having too much to say. In the past several weeks, we’ve seen everything from devastating wildfires to a huge plunge in the stock market. As we approach the holiday season, many feel uncertain. They are uncertain about the economy, the world, their lives. At a time when the nation’s economy has been growing at a record pace, we should be feeling confident. Locally, we have a great deal to be thankful for – from new businesses opening to local businesses reinvesting in their stores. Still, the Great Recession is still in the back of our minds when we look at making a large purchase. I’m not a psychic, nor a gambler, but if I were a betting man, I’d bet on the local economy. I think it will remain strong in 2019. It might not grow at the record pace we’ve seen, but businesses want to come into Cerritos. They know this city is a draw to consumers from across the region. They see the value in opening along South Street, in the Los Cerritos Center, or the industrial park. Things have to slow down, but slow growth is better than no growth. If I bet, I’d bet on Cerritos. Always. This will be the last This Week at the Chamber for 2018. It’s been a tremendous year for the Chamber, and we are looking forward to a great 2019. I want to thank all who have contributed to the Chamber’s success this year – our amazing board of directors, ambassadors, volunteers, and, of course, our tremendous members! We have impacted the local economy in many positive ways from providing valuable human resources information to small businesses to holding the Taste of the Region. We are proud of the role we play in making a difference in this community. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from all of us at the Chamber
