By shopping local you make a difference in our valley’s quality of life by giving the gift of commerce! The Greater Coachella Valley Chamber of Commerce and our sponsoring cities, Cathedral City, Coachella, Desert Hot Springs, Indio and La Quinta thank you for supporting our local business community this holiday season.
