Shop Local, Shop Southern Illinois

By Alex Haglund

Broadening the scope of shopping local to include all of Southern Illinois, the Nashville Chamber of Commerce is taking part in “Shop Southern Illinois” with the chambers of commerce of Benton/West City, Carbondale, Carterville, Chester, DuQuoin, Golconda, Hamilton County, Herrin, Marion, Metropolis, Murphysboro, Pinckneyville, Saline County, Union County and West Frankfort.

There are a number of prizes available for Shop Southern Illinois, with drawings being held by the various chambers on Fridays at 1 p.m. through December 29. Nashville’s drawing will be held on December 8.

To participate, “like” shopsouthernillinois on Facebook and follow @shopsouthernil on Twitter. Then, pledge to shop in southern Illinois this holiday season by using the hashtag #IbuySI – be creative and get on out there and support your local businesses.
