Presented by the University of Illinois Extension, On the Front Line will discuss topics including customer service for the common good, understanding customers, dealing with unhappy customers, and looking back and planning for the future.

The cost to attend is $10. Reservations can be made by calling the Princeton Chamber of Commerce office at 815-875-2616.

The Princeton Retail Development Committee’s mission statement is to find and encourage new retailers to open their businesses in Princeton and assist current retailers with retention and expansion programs.
