Start the season off by Shopping Small Business Saturday November 25 in the Long Beach Island
Southern Ocean County Chamber reminds you to add the Long Beach Island Region to the list for a unique holiday experience and take part in Holidays Redefined Shopping Program
In addition the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, regional SHOP SMALL Headquarters for the November American Express small business initiative, members have been creating unique in store promotions on Thanksgiving Weekend that had given this weekend a boost in purchases, overnight stays and event attendance. From open houses and ongoing shop local incentives throughout the holiday season, it all kicks off on Small Business Saturday, after Black Friday shopping frenzy has subsided. Encouraging promotion of Gift Cards for favorite restaurants, shops, lessons or services are a fantastic way to give back to local businesses who create employment, donate to local causes and provide much needed expertise. The Chamber kicks off the Shopping Season with local businesses at their November 8 membership meeting.
This year Shop Small Saturday will kick off the Holiday's Redefined Shopping Card program which helps promote businesses who have extended hours and services for the season. Prize included a Chowderfest Holiday Stocking Gift Pack featuring vintage tee, chowderfest beer mug with 30th Anniversary Gift Certificate, as well as seasonal event tickets provided by WJRZ. The Southern Ocean Visitor Center will be open on November 25 with Holidays Redefined Shopping Cards, Chowderfest Stocking packs for purchase for $35 , and WJRZ on site with giveaways from 10 to 2pm.
