Seventy local businesses showed off their products and services for old and new clients on Friday.

It's the 21st annual Beckley-Raleigh County Business Show held at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center. Eighty booths from Raleigh and adjoining counties displayed for the public what they offer.

Give-aways included a patio set, a grill and $100 cash every hour from 2 to 6 p.m.

"Our theme is what's new in business and our theory is you are more likely to do business with someone that you know. There's always new products in the market every year so you should come out and get to know the business community because buying local saves jobs, and the job you save might be your own," said Ellen Taylor, President of the Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce.

The Business Show was free and open to the public.

The Chamber of Commerce members have already started to plan for next year's Business Show.
