Memorial Day Business Solid

While the numbers may not be in after the long Memorial Day Weekend, casual observation would seem to indicate that visitation to the community was quite solid.  Jackson Hole Chamber Director Jeff Golightly says merchants with whom he has conversed tell of steady business through their doors. Golightly says the numbers that are available are from the Brewfest where there was a 15% increase in receipts and attendance was up by as much – an increase that has been seen for the past three years. Golightly says anecdotally, “Shop owners that I’ve spoken with since the weekend have indicated that traffic flow seemed to be stronger.”  All in all, he says, it appears to be a pretty good start to the summer. Golightly adds that where trends elsewhere in the nation may have seen a modest decline in travel and tourism over the holiday, the setting of Jackson Hole makes it a particular attraction in tight economic times. Golightly says a national park vacation compared with a vacation where one needs admission tickets to an amusement park or extended flights to foreign destinations is a bargain shoppers destination but also a world-class destination. Golightly says occupancy rates and sales tax receipts that are tallied in the days and weeks ahead should verify what was generally observed around the community.
