New director hopes to attract business



He recently went to a workshop with the Northeast Texas Chambers of Commerce to pool their resources together to draw businesses and people to the northeast Texas area. 

In an effort to become more accessible, Voss said the downtown Commerce location is now open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and is open to the public on suggestions to improve operations.

“Come by the Chamber of Commerce and say hello,” he said. “We’re open to any suggestions.”

Voss said the end goal is to bring more people to experience the Commerce atmosphere.

“We want people to eat here, shop here, stay here,” he said.
