BBB combines eastern Idaho with western Idaho

The Better Business Bureau serving eastern Idaho and western Wyoming is joining forces with the Better Business Bureau serving southwest Idaho and eastern Oregon to combine into one organization, covering three states and 40-counties.

“This is an exciting time for the Better Business Bureau,” said Board Chair Donald Harris. “By combining our offices, we will be able to offer consumers and businesses better service, better information and better educational opportunities. Together, we are better able serve the people who turn to the BBB to find trustworthy businesses and valuable consumer information.”

Combining offices is a result of a vision among community business leaders in eastern and western Idaho who serve as board members for the respective Better Business Bureau offices. Southwest Idaho BBB Board chair Connie Murphy said: “By collaborating to build trust in the marketplace, we are all stronger. We have a unified community of businesses living up to the BBB Standards for Trust; consumers have better access to Reliability Reports as they seek out trustworthy businesses; and together we are better able to warn the public about scam artists working to rip-off the citizens of Idaho.”

The Better Business Bureau will maintain offices and personnel in eastern and western Idaho. “In fact, we anticipate opening additional locations this year,” President/CEO Dale Dixon said.

The BBB now extends its coverage to Ashton, Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Jackson Hole, Malad, Burley, Twin Falls, Nampa, Caldwell or Ontario, Oregon.”

All listed phone numbers and Web addresses for the Better Business Bureau remain the same.
