Vision Care
The Glendale Chamber has partnered with  Vision Care / Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona  to bring you affordable eye care. 

Vision Care allows you to offer your employees eye exams, eyeglasses and contact lenses at insurance prices, with no monthly fee. This unique program can complement traditional employer-paid vision insurance plans or can take the place of traditional vision insurance while saving the employer or the employee hundreds of dollars per year. Do you already offer vision insurance to your employees? Vision Care not only will save you 100% on your costly premiums, but you can shop at Vision Care with other vision insurance and in most cases at prices less than your co-pays.

Vision Care is extending a personal invitation to you, your employees, and their family members to take advantage of this special program.

Our President & CEO, Robert Heidt, recently visited Vision Care!

Economic Vitality is Returning to Glendale

Dear Valued Glendale Chamber Member,  

Economic vitality is returning to Glendale!  Pulte Homes of Arizona and John F. Long Properties , two incredibly well respected names within their industry segment, have recently announced a 450-million-dollar investment by way of StoneHaven, an incredible master planned community situated in the southern part of Glendale.  

StoneHaven will consist of approximately 385 acres and will bring about the much-needed development and construction of more than 1300 single family homes as well as new retail, restaurants and a grocery store.  An independent study projects this project will contribute an additional $49 million dollars in revenues to the City of Glendale.  

With such proximity to Westgate Entertainment District, the development of StoneHaven is all but certain to solidify Glendale as the city and place to live, work and play.  The project has been endorsed by the Mayor of Glendale , the Glendale Star and the Glendale Chamber of Commerce as it will bring new vitality to our community.  

The Glendale City Council will vote on the StoneHaven project on Tuesday, June 27th, we strongly encourage you to express your support to our Mayor and City Council, their contact information is below.
