The trading area encompassed by Chase includes the communities of Adams Lake, Sorrento, Scotch Creek, Celista, Anglemont and Pritchard. The population of the entire area is approximately 12,000.
Pritchard is an unincorporated area located 15 kilometres west of Chase on the Trans Canada Highway #1. The community straddles the Thompson River and is surrounded by agricultural land, much of which is used to produce ginseng.
North Shore - Anglemont, Celista, and Scotch Creek reside in an area known as the North Shore, approximately 36 kilometres off the Trans Canada Highway #1 on the Squilax-Anglemont Highway. These communities lie on the northern side of Shuswap lake with Scotch Creek as the center of activity.
