The Southbury Economic Development Commission (EDC) is running its 2018 #ShopLocal during the American Express Small Business Saturday. The event is taking place on November 24th, the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
We feel that Southbury has a vibrant and varied retail community and we want to remind local shoppers that we have much to offer! If you own a small local business that would like to participate in the #ShopLocal Campaign, please submit your information at www.southbury-ct.org/shoplocal. (Internet businesses qualify, but they must be registered to a Southbury address. AMEX restricts participation to small businesses only. Franchisees of larger corporations do not qualify for the program.)
Here's what you get when you register:
- EDC will promote the program through local newspapers, Facebook, Town wide email blasts and signs around town.
- We will provide you with passports and stickers to give to your customers to record their support of our local businesses. The customer who visits the most merchants can win a prize.
- We will also give out our 2018 edition of our Shop Local bags to all participating businesses!
- We will have a web page listing of all participating merchants and a booth in town for shoppers to get more information.
If you have already registered for the campaign with a EDC member - thank you! We will be posting your information to our web site shortly.
