    MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT: Shop local for the holidays

    Dear Chamber family, 

     

    With there being only two months left of the year, the holiday season is upon us and I am excited for a time of the year that is full of great celebration, food and family time. But, this is also a very critical time for small businesses.

     

    When the year started, your chamber declared 2020 to be the Year of Small Business and our greatest goal was to encourage our community to shop local. Therefore, your chamber is launching its Stronger Together/Shop Local campaign, in which we are advocating that you support our fantastic local businesses these last two months of the year.

     

    You may wonder why the phrase “Stronger Together” is so popular with us. It has become our motto for a reason. Communities - strong communities to be exact - are made by the strength of its unified citizens. It is through our desire to work together as a single unit, that true success happens. This is especially true from a business and economic standpoint. 

     

    The holiday season can truly make or break a business. It is during this time of the year that many businesses have their best revenue, as our wonderful community shops for the gifts for the holidays. 

     

    We want to promote shopping local and supporting the small businesses in our community because without small and local businesses there is no community!  Shopping locally is the key to our community’s economic prosperity and growth. For every $100 spent supporting small businesses, $68 is reinvested in our community. 

     

    League City is growing and expanding every day. This growth could not have happened without all the amazing local businesses that have made League City their home. 

     

    As the time for giving thanks and giving gifts nears, I want to first and foremost thank all our spectacular businesses for being members and helping to make League City the great city it is. I want to encourage everyone to use these last two months to shop locally, support each other morally, financially and continue showing what makes our city great and why we are Stronger Together.
