(Alexandria, MN) -- The Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors visited two local businesses on Wednesday, July 13th, 2016.

Narlie’s Upscale Consignment Boutique, at 418 Broadway Street, offers name brand, gently used women's and children's clothing. They also have a wide variety of quality shoes, handbags and accessories, and household decorations. The Ambassadors visited with Cassia Winkels, who purchased the boutique in July, 2015.

The Ambassadors second visit was with Nice Juicery, which is the first cold pressed juice company to come to the area. Patrick and Rachel Sieve started the business less than a year ago, and just opened their store front at 206 6th Avenue East in June. The company strives to use local and organic produce when available and economically feasible. Every Nice juice is cold pressed, which is a method of juicing that preserves more nutrients by avoiding heat.

The Chamber Ambassadors Committee serve as an active communication link to cultivate and promote positive relationships between the Chamber and the business community for both members and non-members.
