Summer of Shop Local
Now more than ever, it is important to shop local and support the small businesses which are the foundation of our community. One local purchase can make a big difference, and the Chamber is introducing a fun summer twist to encourage local consumers to support our small businesses.
The new program, “Summer of Shop Local”, allows shoppers to earn a badge, just as you would at summer camp. In order to earn these badges, -- one for retail, one for service providers, one for online, and one for restaurants -- a participant will snap a photo from their favorite local business and share the photo with the Chamber through Facebook or Instagram. Once submitted, the shopper will automatically be entered in a random drawing to win a gift card from a local business. The shopper will also receive a digital, camp-style badge which they can then display (email signature, social media, etc.) to show their support of local businesses. If the shopper collects a retail, online, restaurant, and service badge all in one month, they will then receive a Shop Local Champion badge.
Thank you to all participants for shopping local and supporting our community!
