November 15 – The Slow Money Committee of PVCA presents Stephan Goetz from Penn State, who did the economic research proving that bigbox stores and chains are bad for local economies.
Goetz is the director of the Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development. We’ll have an opportunity to hear what he found out,and then pick his brains for ways to continue to grow small businesses in the Valleys.
We’ll be meeting at the old Nostalgia Hardware, 103 Penn Street. Potluck will be at 6:30pm, the meeting will start at 7:00pm. See you there!
