🕯In the lead up to Christmas, the Douglas Chamber of Commerce is celebrating and supporting our local businesses through the festive season.

To help fuel our small business community, we encourage people to shop small, spend local, eat local and enjoy locally.

To leverage this campaign, we invite you to stay active on social media using the hashtag to promote your offers, preview new products or daily specials, events and promotions.

By using #ShopLocalDouglas, Douglas Chamber will also share your promotions across our social media channels. Don’t forget to encourage your shoppers and other consumers to also join in! Really engage with your customers by following the tag, and commenting and interacting. Perhaps consider creating a memorable experience like Floral Edge's festive wreath-making workshop, to encourage shopping locally, because it is your personal touch that makes your business special, so take the opportunity to showcase that!

You may even like to host your own in-store event like 🕯Christmas Late Night Local Shopping 🕯or Port Douglas Sip & Shop with Seafolly X Chandon 🍾👙🍾

Our marketing and social media can help bring customers to your store, but your own offers, events and activities will help keep them there!

We encourage you to tell your business story–in addition to mentioning your Christmas offers, find ways to delight your customers with behind-the-scenes stories, informative and fun details such as team introductions, to help your fans follow along with your story, and to encourage your team to engage in a friendly, fun and personal way.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to be in touch!
