Together, you, Chesapeake Bank and our area chambers have created a shop local movement that reinforces the very real connection between shopping locally and a stronger local economy.
By any measure, our fifth Shop Local Day was a resounding success. More than 335 businesses from the lower Northern Neck, Mathews County, Gloucester County and Greater Williamsburg actively participated by displaying “The Buck Stays Here” decal in shop windows and offering special discounts and other incentives to shoppers.
That’s pretty impressive, and you helped make that happen. Thank you.
Let’s keep the momentum going this holiday season and continue to spread the shop local message. Just download and print the “Ten Good Reasons to Shop Locally” flyer and share with customers, friends and family. When people understand the connection between shopping locally and a stronger local economy, they will think “Shop Local” first.
Best wishes for a happy and prosperous holiday season from your friends and Shop Local partners at Chesapeake Bank.
We’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback on Shop Local Day in the comments section, so please share!
