Luncheon deals with vendors and suppliers

This week's Success Steps Luncheon aims to help businesspeople work with vendors and suppliers. Tough economic times provide an opportunity for businesses to get better terms, pricing and promotional and marketing support, according to a release about the program. Steve Hitchcock, who owns Zirkel Trading and other Steamboat Springs businesses, will facilitate the discussion.

The $15 lunch is 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday at the Steamboat Smokehouse, 912 Lincoln Ave. The Success Steps series is put on by the Colorado Mountain College Small Business Resource Center, SCORE and the Routt County Economic Development Cooperative.
