Malta Chamber of Commerce News for week of December 2, 2015

 

December 2, 2015



With Thanksgiving a short memory, and Christmas in full swing, the Chamber is in our busiest season. Our Late Night openings started this week. They run every Monday night from now until Dec. 21. Great sales and gift ideas were on display, as our merchants stayed open late.

Shoppers picked up Wish Lists created by Malta Merchants. There are a few left, if you didn’t get one. Stop by any shop in town to pick one up. One side has places for you or your family member or friend, to write their wish list, the other side is a gift idea guide with many options, all available here in town. We encourage you to take your family downtown and spend time browsing, and shopping, in our stores!

We were treated this week to hot dogs and hot cider by our local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and they sure were yummy! Kids of all ages were regaled with Christmas stories courtesy of the Phillips County Library. Close Up sold beautiful “M” signs.

We can’t do any of this without our Malta Merchants committee and officers. A big thank you goes out to Jacy Stolem, Merchants president, and Avery Sorensen, vice-president.

Tip of the Week:

This time of year can be stressful as you may find yourself in difficult situations, with customers or colleagues at work, church, clubs or at home. A situation can escalate, and all of a sudden it becomes harder to see solutions. If you can focus on the other’s perspective and why they are upset, you may be able to quickly diffuse it and reach a solution.

The first and best thing to do, is listen. Let them get it all out, and then you can ask some questions to understand. Our emotions come from a different part of our brain than our thought process, and the emotional side works faster. So sometimes we just need a second to have the other part of our brain to catch up, and then everything seems clearer. Your reaction is critical. Though it can be hard, try to stay calm!
