[i] In a study recently commissioned by the Schapiro Group and Market Street of Atlanta, GA, more than 2,000 adults nationwide were surveyed on their spending habits as they related to purchases made from chamber member businesses. The study details a number of attitudes among customers but underscores the significance of chamber membership in general, especially in local communities with significant small business representation.
