Bloomer Chamber of Commerce

Welcome to the Bloomer Chamber of Commerce

"A Place to Call Home"

From beautiful Lake Como to the thriving downtown business district and diversified industrial base, the city of Bloomer has something for everyone. The excellent school district and medical facilities offer outstanding programs and services. Great local restaurants boast local home cooking with specialties like pizza, breads and pies; and local shopping opportunities add to the ambiance of the community. The city has a population of more than 3,400 and is conveniently located in northwestern Wisconsin on State Highways 53, 40, and 64. Bloomer offers an exceptional quality of life to its residents; it is a progressive small community with the amenities of a large city and security of a small town. From the friendly neighborhoods to the charming downtown area, you’ll see that the citizens of Bloomer take pride in their city and welcome you for a visit or a lifetime stay.

 Gov. Tony Evers announced a $75 million in assistance for small businesses as part of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation’s We’re All In initiative, a comprehensive effort to celebrate and help Wisconsin’s small businesses get back on their feet and support best practices to keep businesses, consumers, employees and communities safe.
 
Funded largely by federal dollars received through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, this initiative will provide direct assistance to small businesses most impacted by the duration and restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic. These $2,500 cash grants will assist with the costs of business interruption or for health and safety improvements, wages and salaries, rent, mortgages, and inventory. Businesses will be able to apply for grant assistance in early June.
Wisconsin small businesses have stepped up during this pandemic to keep people safe and many have pivoted to producing needed items such as hand sanitizer and face coverings. Providing relief to small businesses in Wisconsin that have been impacted by the pandemic is an important part of our response to and recovery from the pandemic.
 
The We’re All In initiative will include:
 
1.  Grants in the amount of $2,500 to small businesses with 20 or fewer FTEs impacted by COVID-19 that have not already received WEDC COVID-19 assistance. Up to thirty thousand businesses may receive grants. More details about the program will be available later this month with businesses able to apply for grant assistance in June.
2.  A series of guides for businesses looking to implement best practices to keep employees, customers, and communities safe throughout the COVID-19 crisis. These guides are an essential part of the We’re All In program and were developed in consultation with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Department of Tourism, Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, Department of Safety and Professional Services, as well as industry leaders and public health experts throughout the state. They are found on WEDC’s website at https://wedc.org/reopen-guidelines.
3.  Ethnic Minority Emergency Grants, which provide $2 million in grants for ethnically diverse Wisconsin micro-businesses who suffered losses due to the pandemic. The grants are aimed at sole proprietorship or businesses with five or fewer employees that have not received assistance under either SB 20/20 program or SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program. One thousand grants of $2,000 each will be administered in partnership with Wisconsin’s 19 ethnic and minority chambers of commerce. More details are available at https://wedc.org/programs-and-resources/minority-business-development/.
4.  An integrated public information campaign promoting We’re All In businesses and social practices to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and celebrate Wisconsin’s diverse and strong economy.
 
Gov. Evers stated “We are still encouraging people to stay home as much as possible, practice physical distancing and good hygiene, and take protective measures like wearing a mask in public, but as more businesses continue to reopen around the state, we need to go all in on doing this together.” Grant recipients will become We’re All In businesses by committing to safety protocols and using them in their shops, cafes and places of work to protect their customers, employees, and communities. This network of Main Street businesses will form the backbone of the We’re All In initiative, along with support from major Wisconsin businesses, communities and other associations.

 Small Business Financial Assistance:
The SBA provides both grant and loan options to small businesses impacted by COVID-19. They also are a great resource for federal guidelines and information such as understanding the CARES Act.
 
 
The U.S. Chamber is working closely with the White House, U.S. government agencies, and foreign government officials to inform and equip businesses with the most important and up-to-date information to prevent the spread of the virus and prepare businesses for the near and long-term impact.
 
Wisconsin Employment Guidelines & Resources:
Wisconsin's DWD is here to assist you in navigating unemployment and worker's compensation during the current pandemic.

With regard to the governor's Safer at Home order which takes effect March 24th.....
Our establishments will comply with what the directives state. It is very important that we are able to move forward from the COVID 19 crisis and in order to do so the government's guidance is very important to adhere to.
As always, we will be available every single day of the year and every single hour of the day, No matter what. Simply call us at 715-568-2310 for immediate service for any of your needs, emergency or not. In addition we are able to provide free video conferencing with as many members in your family as needed. All you need is a computer, iPad, tablet, or even a smartphone. There is always the telephone as well! and yes, we can still meet with you face to face at our funeral homes if desired.
While we are still able to provide funeral services, we fully realize that they may not be exactly under the circumstances you would have hoped. If your family wants to postpone any kind of service, we certainly understand that and please know we are here to assist you in doing so. We will do everything we can to accommodate your family's needs while working within the law and place for the next month.
As I have stated for the last two weeks during this crisis your family's safety and the safety of our staff are my number one priority and will always be.
As we make our way through these unprecedented times we ask for your understanding, patience, and prayer. We will all make it through this. And we will always be here for you when you need us.
God Bless,
Matt Thompson
