Get Out and Buy Local June 23
Saturday, June 23 is the Tri-Town Chamber of Commerce’s Buy Local Saturday, part of their summer long Buy Local program.
“This Saturday we’re encouraging shoppers to Buy Local and show it by taking a picture with the 2012 Tri-Town Chamber Member sticker and posting it on the Tri-Town Chamber Facebook Page,” said Kara Griffin, executive director for the Tri-Town Chamber of Commerce.
The person with the most pictures posted on Facebook by 6 p.m. on Saturday will win a Chamber Buy Local gift certificate.
“We’ve gotten such a great response from the residents and the businesses in Mansfield, Foxboro and Norton,” said Jen Vondenbrink, Tri-TownChamber social media specialist. “For the last two weeks I’ve been talking to local businesses about Buy Local. Everyone has been enthusiastic about the program.”
Barrows Insurance Agency in Mansfield is donating $5 for every quote written in June and 5 percent of every policy written to local organizations in the three towns. Inner Light in Mansfield is offering a Face Lift Massage for $50 (regularly $90). Adonis Electrolysis in Norton is offering new clients $5 off, and Norton Kayak Company has been offering weekend paddle specials.
Other summer Buy Local events include featuring Do Local/Stay Local in July, a back to school contest in August for kids and their families, and topped off with Celebrate Local which includes their annual Oktoberfest.
Support local businesses this weekend and you might be surprised by a chamber volunteer with a special gift.
