The Bronze Antler Bed & Breakfast, just like most bed and breakfast lodging, is a small, independently owned business. Once we retired from the US Army, Bill and I opened the Bronze Antler B&B in June 2001 because we wanted to own our own business and keep it a manageable size.
Sine then we have hosted guests from all over looking for an Eastern Oregon vacation spot. We currently employ three fantastic staff members and are proud to provide local jobs.
And we buy local as often as we can from local markets, hardware stores, and other businesses. And we blog about them too.
We recently learned of the "Independent We Stand
" website and movement, encouraging the public to support independently owned businesses. We definitely fit the profile and are listed on their site.
If you know of indie businesses your support, encourage them to list themselves on Independent We Stand--and remember that just a little bit of local partronage goes a long way to supporting a community!
