Many local businesses embrace the home show because it assists with marketing their company's image in front of many members of the community.

"I have always been pleased with the community turnout," said Dale Bowman of Bowman's Home and Garden.

Local business owners believe the show increases the volume of customers in their stores, even weeks after the show's conclusion.

Also occurring the weekend of the Home Show is the affiliated truck sale of compost bins and rain barrels. This sale will take place at the Agricultural Center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. today. According to the advertisement for the SYSTERN rain barrel, an inch of rain that falls on a 1,000-square-foot roof will harvest a net gain of over 600 gallons of rainwater. The rain barrells conserve enough water to flush a typical toilet at least 100 times without having to use any groundwater.
