Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce President and C-E-O Dale Steenbergen says informal conversations he's had with local businesses seems to indicate that most are doing well so far this shopping season.

Steenbergen says that although he doesn't have any hard numbers available at this point, the consensus among those he has talked to is that people are turning out to shop and  are spending money. He also encouraged residents to shop locally as much as possible, reminding people that doing so helps the local economy.
