by Staff Reports
The Boone Business Expo returns Friday, offering a chance for locals to learn about area businesses new and old.
The event, sponsored by the Boone Area Chamber of Commerce, will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Boone Mall.
About 50 booths will be set up for local companies to share their stories. Everyone from insurance agents to bankers to restaurants will be represented, including Mountain Times Publications.
For the first time this year, Linville Falls Winery will offer tastings of its selections, said Wysteria White, administrative assistant for the Boone Area Chamber. Other businesses also will offer giveaways and contests.
"It's a great networking opportunity, and it's an opportunity for our members to showcase their goods and services," White said.
