This holiday season, you can give to your community when you give to your family

Global supply chain shortages are wreaking havoc on buyers and sellers alike. Large businesses of every kind have a growing list of products that are being put on back order again and again. Many people are predicting that this issue is going to negatively impact the holiday shopping season.

Why take a chance on shipping delays? Your loved ones’ Christmas gifts should be under the tree, not stuck on a container ship. The only way to guarantee your gifts arrive on time is to shop local. By shopping local this holiday season, you’re not only providing your family with unique gifts from sellers you can trust, but you’re contributing to the local economy. 

Small businesses do more for Wisconsin’s communities than we realize. In our state, 99.4% of all businesses are small, and they employ 49.5% of the workforce—which is 1.3 million people. In 2019 alone, businesses operating with fewer than 20 employees created 13,000 new jobs in our state. These businesses support your community! For every $100 spent at a local business, $68 stays in that community. More local success means more local tax money, which in turn supports schools and other services such as fixing roads. 

Don’t know what to buy your family this year? The Cable Area Chamber has Chamber Dollars gift certificates which can be used at any of our member businesses. This could buy your best friend’s coffee from Velo Café, your dad’s next great read from Redbery Books, or some Lake Namakagon merch for yourself from the Loon Saloon! 

Supplement your holiday budget by entering the chamber’s Christmas Cash Raffle! For $10 a ticket you earn a chance to win anywhere between $50 and $1,000. Drawings are happening every day in December at noon, so be sure to follow us on Facebook to see if you’re a lucky winner. Tickets can be purchased at the Cable Area Chamber or any local business.
