There are plenty of locally owned and operated small businesses in your neighborhood! Below are just a few suggestions of where you can visit, shop and dine at during Go Local Wednesday.

  • Restaurants

  • Bookstores

  • Newsstands

  • Jewelers


  1. Include your small business’ Twitter handles or tag your business on Facebook.
  2. Include the handles for businesses you're supporting so they can gain even more exposure and respond.
  3. Tag friends, co-workers and relevant people (after asking their permission).
  4. Show off the local products that you bought in visual format (whether photo or video).
  5. Don’t forget to use #GoLocal hashtag in all of your posts.
  6. Using images will garner more attention than pure text. Get creative!
