The chamber is dedicated to supporting our local retailers, restaurants and community banks by promoting the benefits of shopping, dining and
banking locally. Cash Mobs, Holiday Strolls, our annual
Spring Seasonings restaurant showcase, a chamber produced shop local video campaign and our “Shop & Schmooze” networking series further showcase merchants to members and the community as a whole.
As part of our shop local messaging campaign, you'll find below (and at this link) a number of graphics that can be downloaded and used on your personal, business or organization's social media, website, email campaigns and printed materials. If there's a size or format you need - please don't hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll update seasonally to encourage shopping (and dining) locally all year round.
Shop Local for the Holidays
Shop Local and support the merchants who support us.
Local merchants and restaurants give generously to our community organizations - whether it's hosting an event, donating gift certificates or one-of-a-kind items for auctions, sponsoring a youth sports team, helping with prizes for school fundraisers and more!
Shopping, dining and banking locally sends a powerful message to the business owners who invest in our community that we also support them.
Take the shop local pledge.
Signal your support for shopping locally by taking our shop local pledge this holiday season. Use this graphic as a temporary profile photo, share on instagram and social media, or include in your email signature. Tag @nnchamber and use #shoplocal.
Keep your investment within the community.
Studies show that every dollar spent at a locally owned small business is twice as likely to remain within the local community. Local merchants provide jobs, pay taxes that improve our roads, schools, police and fire officers and more.
Educate your consumers about the community-wide impact of supporting small businesses.
It's not all about shopping.
Supporting the economic vitality of our communities is not just about shopping. Encourage your customers, supporters, followers and friends to give back this holiday season - through shopping and dining, yes - but also by giving to or getting involved with a local nonprofit organization.
Shop Newton. Shop Needham. Shop Watertown.
