I Get It! in Faribault
For every local purchase….. there’s a local purpose!
The I GET IT! in Faribault initiative is designed to promote shopping on a retail level, but it goes even further by encouraging residents and businesses to make a conscious decision to purchase services locally as well.
Local businesses add to the character that is Faribault, contributing more than just goods and services. They offer personalized attention, add diversity to our shopping options, and bring life to historic buildings. And they pay their employees—and local taxes—with the income they receive. Each time you choose to spend your dollars at a local business, you are voting for the continued strength and vitality of our community. Local business owners invest in community. Local businesses are owned by people who live in this community, worship and send their children to schools here, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in the community’s future.
Chamber Checks help promote shopping locally – and are available year round at the Chamber. There is no fee, just face value negotiable checks that promote the SHOP LOCAL Message.
HOT DEALS are posted on the Chamber website at no charge for members. The HOT DEAL offer also is posted on the I GET IT in Faribault Facebook page and the Chamber Facebook page. Another way to promote specific offers, services or merchandise!
The I GET IT in Faribault Program uses social media to engage consumers through on-line games and promotions
SHOP SMALL SATURDAY is another “shop local” promotion used to help consumers understand the importance of supporting small businesses.
Get involved with the shop local campaign that reaches consumers directly and connects your business with people who GET IT! Members are welcome to join the planning team that meets periodically to develop new ways to share the I GET IT message.
Find us on Facebook and post photos and testimonials of your local favorite places to GET IT!
