Regarding the benefits of being a vendor at this event, Carolyn Weeks, the 2018 Murphy Chamber of Commerce Spring Fever Director of Events said, “You will be able to expand your customer base. This is a fun and informal way to meet the community. It is a family-friendly event.” Weeks is a Farmers Insurance Agent and her office is located in the Lowe’s parking lot. Regarding her experience being a vendor at previous Spring Fever events she said, “I have long time customers who I met at Spring Fever. This is a way to meet customers who don’t know they need you yet.” She suggests that vendors who did not participate in this year’s event come out and see why they should participate next year.
