Celebrate Small Business Season
The Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to announce the launch of Small Business Season! Small businesses are the heart and soul of our community and make our city unique and vibrant. This exciting event is set to run from November 1st through December 31st, and it promises to be a memorable experience for both residents and visitors alike.
Small Business Season is not just a shopping event; it’s a celebration of the entrepreneurs and small business owners who contribute significantly to our local economy and create jobs, opportunities, and a sense of community. This initiative is designed to spotlight the dedication, resilience, and innovation of our small business community, providing them with a platform to thrive and grow.
Here are some of our favorite ways to support our community this Small Business Season:
- Gift Local: Consider purchasing gift cards or certificates from local businesses to give as presents to family and friends. This not only supports small businesses but also introduces others to the local gems in your area. Did you know the Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce hosts an e-gift gift card program called ROCO Dollars? Choose your recipient (family, friends, team members) and send them a gift card via email or text message. The recipient can use it to make purchases at participating local merchants. Check out more info here.
- Shop Local: Whenever possible, choose to shop at local small businesses during Small Business Season. Whether you’re purchasing gifts, dining out, or shopping for everyday essentials, patronize local establishments to boost their revenue and sustain local jobs.
- Spread the Word: Utilize social media platforms to share your positive experiences with local businesses. Write reviews, post pictures of your purchases, and use event-specific hashtags to create buzz. Your online endorsements can go a long way in attracting new customers.
The Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce encourages everyone to be a part of this community-focused season by showing their support for the small businesses that have been the backbone of our city. Small Business Season is a time to celebrate local entrepreneurs and artisans, and it’s an opportunity for us all to contribute to the prosperity of our community.
Your Chamber is dedicated to supporting and promoting local businesses, fostering economic growth, and building a strong community. We provide resources, business building opportunities, and advocacy for businesses of all sizes, from startups to established companies.
