The Village of Chase and the Chase & District Chamber of Commerce have joined Shop the Neighbourhood, a local shopping campaign dedicated to small business support.
The Village of Chase has declared this Saturday, Nov. 28 as Shop the Neighbourhood Day, and the Chase & District Chamber of Commerce has been encouraging everyone to participate.
Scheduled during the busiest shopping time of the year, Shop The Neighbourhood sheds light on the important impact that money spent locally can have, directly benefiting neighbourhoods and communities.
Across the country on Nov. 28, Canadians are being encouraged to make local purchases in support of their local businesses.
In 2014, more than 750,000 Canadians joined the Yellow Pages campaign, spending $89 million at local businesses during the Shop The Neighbourhood event.
The chamber has also announced a new series of articles called “Getting to know our business leaders and local organizations.”
Several local businesses and organizations have completed a questionnaire allowing the chamber to write an article on their business or organization and approving it for publication.
Interested businesses are asked to contact the chamber.
Also coming up in May is the Shuswap Experience Trade Show at the Art Holding Memorial Arena.
The show, set for May 7, is meant to provide participating businesses with a chance to meet new and existing customers and network with other businesses.
