"Keep Dollars in Sherwood" Formed to Further Economic Development

Sherwood residents,

How would you like to play a vital role in bringing more businesses to Sherwood? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a wider variety of dining options closer to home? Perhaps a grocery store within walking distance?

You may have noticed that some areas in Sherwood are “dry,” prohibited to sell alcohol, while other areas are “wet,” allowed to sell alcohol. With an area being dry, it restricts the different types of businesses that want to come there. Essentially, money that should benefit our city is leaving because those options are available in nearby cities.

Our growth is moving north along Highway 107, which is where the majority of these dry areas are located. In order for these dry areas to develop economically, they need to be wet to give the opportunity for high-end restaurants, convenience stores, and grocery stores to open there.

So how can a dry area become wet? An election needs to be held to make this happen. In the coming weeks, you will see individuals canvassing your neighborhood. They will be asking you to sign a petition. By signing, you are supporting our efforts to make this election happen. We want to be very clear; this will not allow for more liquor stores in our city.

We ask that you please take a few minutes and sign the petition. Let’s open our city up to economic growth opportunities, and bring more options to our residents. Petitions are also available to sign at our office. If you have any questions or concerns, we would be glad to help.

Let’s Keep The Dollars In Sherwood!

Chamber Leads Group Formed
After many requests, the Sherwood Chamber has finally started a Leads Group. This is a group of professionals from non-competing businesses that have as their sole objective to provide each other prospects or "leads" that they can approach and ask to earn that consumer's business. The end benefit to each member of the leads group is more customers or clients. If you are a Sherwood Chamber member and are interested in generating more customers or clients, then you or someone from your organization will want to be a part of our Leads Group. For more information, or to see if there is an opening for your business category, call Marcia at the Chamber, 501-835-7600.
