From the Director...

Welcome to Belle Fourche!

DirectorGaryWood 

Welcome to the Chamber of Commerce website here in Belle Fourche, SD

The Chamber represents 218 businesses in and around Belle Fourche.  We’re pleased to encourage you - our community, neighbors, and visitors - to shop in our businesses and here is why!

I was talking to a long time Belle Fourche area rancher last week and he wondered why Belle Fourche didn’t capitalize on the fact that it offers “one stop” shopping.  As a rancher he can come to town and get everything he needs right here without having to travel to another town to get one or two other items.  For him, everything he needs personally or as a rancher is available here in Belle Fourche.

That’s a pretty amazing for a city our size.  But I believe what he’s saying is a fact, based upon the January 2017 Municipal Tax Report from the Feb. 14, 2017 Legislative Bulletin 4 put out by the South Dakota Retailers.  According to that report Belle Fourche registered a 5.02% increase in sales tax revenue since January of 2016.  It is also important for businesses and residents of Belle Fourche alike to note that our sales tax income for the year was not only up but we had more sales ($239,750.28) compared to Deadwood’s $193.550.49.

Belle Fourche is a center for trade that has a far reach in ND, SD, WY & MT.  Businesses locate here because of our vast trade area and the availability of what our ag and manufacturers need.  Our businesses are doing something right to post an increase in sales in the middle of winter, and in spite of a much reduced livestock market.

Welcome to Belle Fourche where “WE PRODUCE” a wide array of products and services.  Come check us out!

Sincerely,

Gary Wood
Executive Chamber Director
