11/9/2018 - EDC: Businesses Wanted for #ShopLocal Campaign

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 (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.

Thank you.
