Shop Owensboro – Summer Edition, Powered by Independence Bank
Jul 27 all-day

The Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce Shop Owensboro – Summer Edition, Powered by Independence Bank, again this year on Saturday, July 27! 

Shop Owensboro was created to elevate the well-known Shop Small Saturday concept, a nationally recognized shopping day occurring each year on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. This is the fourth year we are hosting a summer edition of this signature event, and we think this is a great opportunity to promote our local businesses. This will be the perfect time to back-to-school shop for the new clothes and materials kids need before beginning the school year!

Chamber Members are invited to participate in this exciting event. This event will help Members gain exposure, as well as media promotions by tagging our page @gochamber in all Shop Owensboro related posts.

How businesses can participate:

This is a business-led event, meaning participating businesses should self-promote through advertising, flyers and other handout materials, as well as media promotion leading up to the Shop Owensboro date. There will not be a signup process for participants – everyone is encouraged to participate and spread the word about #ShopSmall!
