Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and the entire holiday shopping season is on the horizon. The Rome-Floyd Chamber urges locals to support their neighbors by shopping with small businesses throughout Rome, Cave Spring, and Floyd County.
Pam Powers-Smith, the Chamber’s President and CEO, hopes that Rome and Floyd County residents will shop locally year-round and especially during the holidays.
Not only does shopping locally boost tax revenues, it also allows businesses to grow, asserts Powers-Smith.
The Rome-Floyd Chamber’s website, www.romega.com, is a great resource for shoppers and for those in search of a job, says Powers-Smith.
The Chamber is teaming with Rome’s Downtown Development Authority to offer incentive for shopping locally via the Small Business Season Passport. Shoppers at participating businesses will be entered into a raffle to win a gift basket. For additional details, visit the Rome-Floyd Chamber at 1 Riverside Parkway in Rome or call (706) 291-7663. Information is also available online at www.romega.com/small-business-season-passport.
