Summer Sidewalk Sales

The County Fair is quickly approaching, summer is coming to an end and school is just around the corner. In the spirit of the end-of-summer season, several members of the Ord Area Chamber of Commerce are offering great savings during Sidewalk Sales on July 27 and July 28, 2017. Download the complete list of participating Chamber members, their store hours and promotions here.

Sidewalk Sales not only allows you to take advantage of great promotions and savings, it also strengthens local businesses and our community in a variety of ways. Shopping local creates local employment and self-employment for your friends, family and neighbors who turn around and spend their income in the community on goods and services they need. Supporting local businesses also enables them to invest more in our community, whether it is a sponsorship for the county fair or a youth sports team.

If you consider the cost of travel and value of your time, buying local saves you money compared to traveling 60 miles away and shopping at a big box store. In addition to all of these benefits, local businesses value you more. You may be welcomed by a friendly greeter as you enter a big box store but local business owners and their employees desire to get to know their customers. They offer to order certain products or customize their services in order to meet your needs.

Whether it’s a retail shop, restaurant, bank or mechanic, your support of local businesses will in turn support our community in significant ways.
