South Bend – Elkhart Regional Partnership Launches Professional Services Directory


SOUTH BEND – ELKHART, Ind. ​​​​​​(Aug. 5, 2021) — According to a July 23, 2021, Newsweek expert panel article, 10 Customer Behavior Trends to Keep an Eye on This Year and Beyond, there is a rising interest in using local businesses, as well as a shift toward convenience and human contact. The rising interest in using local businesses is a great strategy to minimize risk in supply chains, support local economies and foster new business growth.
