At Chesapeake Bank, we know that Main Street and locally owned and operated businesses are the backbone of the American economy and community banking. Where entrepreneurs thrive, optimism and an air of prosperity infuse the community. Successful shopkeepers and restaurateurs build the economy from within by purchasing local goods and services and supporting other local businesses. And, consumers are repaying that effort and vision with a shared dedication to the small businesses that make their communities unique and vibrant places.
Join Chesapeake Bank and area chambers of commerce in promoting and celebrating small business — your business — in the lower Northern Neck, Middle Peninsula, Yorktown and Greater Williamsburg on Shop Local Day, Saturday, May 3, 2014.
It’s easy and there is absolutely no cost to you. All you have to do is complete the participation form, display The Buck Stays Here decal, and offer special incentives to shoppers on May 3, 2014. In addition, we encourage you to extend your special offers a day, a week or more to entice shoppers to visit again and again.
So, don’t wait. Sign up today. We’ve updated and streamlined the registration process by shortening the participation form and adding new business categories. Just complete the form below and shoppers will be able to view your business listing and offer in our online directory.
And, that’s not all. Chesapeake Bank has created marketing materials to help you promote your business and Shop Local Day. Free shopping bags, The Buck Stays Here decals and Save the Date counter tent cards are available at your nearby Chesapeake Bank branch or Chamber office.
