Sisters area businesses want to let you know that they are open for business, even with smoke and fire nearby.
The Sisters Country Chamber of Commerce spokesperson, Jeri Buckmann says all of the firefighters housed at the rodeo fairgrounds have been spending their money in town: “I have seen that the fire crews. They are out at the rodeo grounds, and throughout town, I have seen them come in, go into the stores, walk around. So they are partaking in the town, so I do think that they do support that. They know how tough it is."
Buckmann says the smoke seems to clear up in the afternoons, and all businesses are operating normal business hours.
She says most businesses have current information of fire activity and there are kiosks around town so visitors can get up to date information.
