Loyal to Local

In a world where you can shop anywhere, choose to shop local. This means spending your dollars at locally operated businesses - large and small. While the price, selection and convenience of one-stop shopping sites are tempting, keeping your dollars in our local community is more important  than ever as we recover from the effects of COVID-19.
Consider supporting businesses that are members of the local Chamber of Commerce. These businesses renew their membership yearly - showing their support for the community at large. Let's return the favor!

Businesses Supporting Each Other

It's important for our business community to show mutual support; please seek out fellow Chamber members to provide goods and services you need for your home or business. Each member listed in our Business Directory is dedicated to the community by renewing their membership annually; when you support them our economy is strengthened.


Local Businesses Need Our Help

  • Purchase gift cards from local businesses
  • Shop online with local retailers
  • Share a business's social media post
  • Order takeout or delivery from a local restaurant
  • Write a positive review for a local business on Google or Yelp
  • Ask a neighbor or family member if you can help them with anything
  • Consult with a travel agent for a future trip
  • Subscribe to a mailing list for a local business
  • Tell a grocery store employee that they're appreciated
  • Take a deep breath - we will get through this!



With the spread of the Coronavirus, this is a difficult time for small businesses, including restaurants. Many are working hard to make their menu available on a take-out and delivery basis with adjusted hours. Below is a list of Chamber restaurants that are still open.

Leave a Review
