Earlier this year, Chesapeake Bank hosted its second Shop Local Day, where over 250 merchants opened their doors to the community and offered shopping incentives in support of its patronage.
We’re gearing up for our third Shop Local Day, and we need merchants! From hardware stores to restaurants; gift shops to lawn supplies, if you support the local community, register to participate – it’s free to join!
Locally owned and operated businesses in the Greater Williamsburg, Northern Neck or Middle Peninsula regions are eligible to participate. As a registered merchant, you get access to Shop Local Day promotional materials, advertising support and social media mentions leading up to the big day on Saturday, November 9 (speaking of social media, be sure to “Like” our Facebook page, and we’ll “Like” you back).
For merchants who have previously participated, you may notice a few changes on the registration form. First, we’ve taken the registration process online – making it easier, and quicker for you to get involved. We’ve also made changes to the registration form itself by allowing businesses to extend their Shop Local Day offers beyond (or before) the day itself. You can also categorize your business, making it easier for shoppers to find the stores that fit their needs.
Register today, take advantage of the merchant resources and, who knows – you may even see yourself right here on It’s All About Community.
