Buy Local for a Shore Economy...

Buy Local for a Shore EconomyThe Northampton County Chamber of Commerce, The Chincoteague Chamber of Commerce, the Eastern Shore of Virginia Chamber of Commerce and the Tourism Commission announce a united effort to encourage cash flow on Virginia's Eastern Shore through the "Buy Local...For a Shore Economy" campaign. 

 

 

The campaign will be carried out in a variety of ways, including:

  • Media support by local radio stations and newspapers
  • Sharing articles through chamber publications
  • Working with our memberships to identify and help tell positive stories about businesses that are succeeding
  • Offering visual displays to our businesses that remind people to buy locally
  • Encouraging our businesses to provide incentives to aid local customers

It's simple to be a part of this campaign. Maximize your participation by:

  • Registering your business as a participant by contacting one of our Chambers.
  • Reproducing the downloadable Flyer and giving it to every customer/client/patient when they check out. (Please cut in 4)
  • Reproducing the large flyer and/or tent card to display at your check out counter (check back soon)
  • Including the downloadable Logo on your advertisements.
  • Considering offering simple incentives like "locals’ night”, a free dessert, or 10% off final purchase on a specific day, etc. Be creative, but keep it simple.
  • Letting us know how this campaign is affecting your business.
  • Spreading the word!

Give us a call today, find out more and to share any ideas you may have for the campaign. We look forward to working with you towards a vibrant economy on Virginia's Eastern Shore.
