Update on Chamber "Shop Local" Focus Group
Order tees for your employees with your business logo on the back!
The volunteer members of the Chamber “Keep It Local” Focus Group have been working diligently to help hit home and stress the importance of shopping and conducting business locally.
Precision Imprint gave these tees to attendees at their Chamber Business Before Hours in May. Everyone loved them and at our Focus Group meeting we discussed that it would certainly be novel if businesses were given an opportunity to purchase these tees for employees to wear on Dress Down Days or just around town doing errands.
These shirts are not exclusive to Chamber member businesses and the Chamber will not receive any proceeds from the purchase of these shirts. Instead it is our hope that businesses and organizations from all sectors in Athens County will jump on board. It is a win-win…businesses receive personalization with logos and we get the word out about the importance of Keeping It Local always and in all ways.
Everyone knows Austin's tag line… “Keep Austin Weird.” Wouldn’t it be neat if these tees became a trademark for Athens County? Just sayin'...
The Chamber encourages our members to download our Keep it Local Magnet to your website or ad it to any and all advertising campaigns. Together we make a difference!
Our 2014 Membership Directory, published locally by The Athens Messenger, is a wonderful resource. Click on this link to view the entire publication interactively.
Thanks for Keeping It Local and enjoy!
