I am moving to Montrose CO and need information about the area.

First, welcome to Montrose! We love this town and hope you will too. The Virtual Chamber does not provide this type of information about the community, so we suggest you contact the Montrose Visitor’s Center

What do I do if I have a complaint about a local business?

We do not accept phone calls or emails to our office about complaints.

Our online business directory allows registered users to leave a review. If you’ve had a negative experience with a local business, then you may leave a review on their listing. 

When leaving a negative review, keep these Community Standards in mind so that we can cultivate a positive community: 

1) Be kind. No slander, name calling, or swearing. Remember, the people on the other end of that business are most likely small business owners trying to make their business work, and everyone makes mistakes. 

2) Be specific, but don’t give confidential information away in a public forum. 

3) Wait 24 hours after your negative experience so you don’t say something you regret later. 

The Virtual Chamber reserves the right to remove any review that does not meet our community standards above. 

If you are a business owner with a negative review on your listing, you have these rights: 

1) Appeal the review. Send us a message and let us know that the review doesn’t meet the community standards. We will investigate, and if we deem the review to be inapproriate, we will remove it. 

2) Reply to the review directly. Sometimes a simple, “We regret your bad experience and invite you to call us directly to discuss” is all it takes to difuse a situation. 

I need a business referral; can I call or email the Virtual Chamber?

The Virtual Chamber does not have the staff to manage a large volume of calls and emails, nor do we respond to emails or voicemails with this request. If you need to find a particular type of business, then please browse the Business Directory (click on the link at the top of the page and browse by category).

Keep in mind that the Vitual Chamber does not recommend a business simply because they have a listing on our site.

You can also do a Google search and read online reviews. 

Is the Virtual Chamber connected to the Montrose Chamber of Commerce that closed on May 24, 2019?
