Oconto promotes ‘No Place Like Local’

The holiday season is upon us, and the Oconto Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce their latest campaign, “There’s No Place Like Local for the Holidays.” This campaign aims to promote and support our local businesses during the busiest shopping season of the year.

The campaign recognizes the importance of shopping locally and the impact it has on the community.

“By shopping at local businesses, we are not only supporting our friends and neighbors, but we are also helping to strengthen our local economy,” said Samantha Boucher, president of the Oconto Area Chamber. “This holiday season, let’s come together as a community and show our support for our local shops.”

To encourage shoppers to support our local businesses, the chamber has launched a punch card program. Shoppers can pick up a punch card from any participating local business. For a minimum purchase of $10, they will receive a single punch on their card. Once the card is filled with 10 punches, it can be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of several door prizes.

“We are thrilled to launch this campaign and promote our local businesses during the holiday season,” Boucher said. “Our local shops offer unique and one-of-a-kind gifts that you won’t find anywhere else. By shopping locally, you are not only supporting our community, but you are also finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones.”
