Tourism Survey from Travel Southern Oregon
The smoke from last year was a devastate blow to tourism in Southern Oregon. The survey tells us that 70% of the tourists planning on traveling in our area decided not to come. Many come from Canada and are at the age of 60-69. They, 50%, do say if the summer is clear in 2019 they will be traveling to Southern Oregon. Christy and Judy believe we will get a large number of tourists into our Gallery and are doubling up in the summer with volunteers so we are completely covered on the front desk. We hope for no smoke and know that without the smoke we will do much better in our sales.
If you use the link above you will be surprised by the in-depth survey and the amount of people who plan on coming this summer. We want to keep the doors open 7 days a week and are doing so now because we have so many great volunteers who love working at our Gallery. Christy is doing a great job organizing all our volunteers every month and increasing our volunteer list.
