Small Business Season - SHOP LOCAL
The Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce has been a participating neighborhood champion for over 10 years!
This year, we’re celebrating Small Business Season™! Small Business Season is a global marketing initiative designed to bring awareness to how shopping locally has a large positive impact on our community. Small businesses are your neighbors and friends. They provide over 60% of all new jobs, and they are the first people we call upon to support local initiatives, nonprofits, and youth activities.
When they thrive, we thrive!
As part of this initiative, we’re challenging you to support the small businesses in our area that make our community one of the best around. We’re asking you to make a small change in your spending habits for a big impact on our community this holiday season. Committing to switching just one thing you buy from an out-of-town business, can mean an increase of about 20% in revenue for our community. Imagine what we could do if everyone pledged to shop locally.
Ways you can help small businesses this holiday season:
Buy, dine, and visit small
Tell friends about your favorite places
Buy local gift certificates
Share posts about shopping locally and your favorite businesses on social media
Check-in on social media when shopping, dining, and visiting local
Let’s help our neighbors and start celebrating your Small Business Season commitment today!
