On the News Hour today:
Howard Bernstein - Howard manages the Wine and Spirits Gallery based in Windsor Heights. It's by no means a LARGE facility and, for many, that's what makes it special. We'll talk about the "David and Goliath" story about how small shops compete with the "big box" grocery stores, what is the difference and do they really...sell the same...stuff. Howard Bernstein in the first half-hour.
Mary Maloney - Mary is the Polk County Treasurer and no doubt you've recently received a letter from Mary about...property taxes. We'll visit with her about business and property taxes, the collection and stewardship of the dollars collected. Nope, not politics...just business.
Along with our guests we'll have a special report about the "largest Indian grocery store in Iowa" and you'll never believe where that is. We've got a short interview with our friend Sam Auen about the opening of his new brick and mortar restaurant, Tacopocalypse. And will he tell us where the name came from? Those stories, the stocks of local interest, our report from agriculture, a small business marketing tip and a host of other business related items all speaking to economic development and business in the Des Moines Metro.
And...if you would like to grab the Podcast from the show...yesterday here you go!
