Save the Date: Shop Local Day

Chesapeake Bank’s third installment of Shop Local Day is almost here, so save the date! On Saturday, November 9, take to your local Main Street (or favorite shopping district) and show the local merchants in your area how much you care.


Our November Shop Local Day is a great way to get a head start on the holidays. Prepare your shopping list, gather friends and family and start mapping out your day. Businesses of all shapes and sizes will be participating; restaurants to hardware stores, gift shops to yard supply shops. Over 130 businesses in the Greater Williamsburg, Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula regions are registered so far.


Chesapeake Bank, in partnership with local merchants and Chambers of Commerce, created Shop Local Day in 2012 as a way to encourage patrons to make conscious shopping decisions by taking their business from the Big Boxes on Wall Street to the stores on Main Street. By shopping local, you’re supporting the businesses that support you and your community.


To look through the local merchants who are currently signed up to participate in Shop Local Day, head to We’re constantly signing up more businesses; so check back daily right up to the big day.
