ABOUT THE CHAMBER

The Petersburg Chamber of Commerce is committed to promoting local businesses.

Our new “Shop Local-Save Local” campaign is designed to encourage residents and fellow Chamber members to buy locally whenever possible. The result is increasing (or at least saving) local jobs, keeping local taxes in Petersburg and Menard County (instead of transferring wealth to other counties) and investing in a continued high quality of life in our beautiful community. Too many small towns have died! They have lost industry, retail businesses and opportunities. The Chamber is committed to short-term and long-term initiatives to spur business development and keep our community vibrant.
