Chamber launches holiday 'Stand Tall, Shop Small for OKC' campaign

By Chamber Staff / Development / November 23, 2020

The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber is encouraging residents to take pride in their community and rally together to save small businesses during the upcoming holiday season.

As the shopping season begins, the Chamber is relaunching its Stand Tall and Shop Small for OKC campaign. The Chamber wants residents to give a much-needed boost to the businesses that make the city unique.

“Local retail is critical to our city and almost no industry has been hit harder during the pandemic,” said Roy Williams, president and CEO of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber. “We encourage the residents of Oklahoma City to do everything they can to support small businesses during this holiday season to help them get through these trying times. Whether it is buying presents at your favorite local shop or ordering take out from a local restaurant, every dollar we spend locally this holiday season will help make Oklahoma City stronger.”

Taking pride in Oklahoma City by shopping at small, local businesses is a direct way to fund vital city services. While the sales tax collection has been down because of the pandemic, for every dollar spent at a locally owned store, 67 cents stay in the community. Money spent at independent stores is multiplied in the community because it helps pay wages for local residents, who spend their money locally as well.

The Chamber will promote the campaign on its social media accounts, which can be found on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. Local small businesses and residents can download pictures to use on their social media accounts at http://www.okcchamber.com/shopsmallforokc. Small businesses can also contact the Chamber to request Shop Small and Stand Tall for OKC window clings.

“It is also important to remember that doing what you can to combat the current pandemic is just as critical to getting our small business community back on its feet,” said Williams. “Most of our local retailers are online and if you do shop in person please follow CDC guidelines by wearing a mask and maintaining proper social distancing.”
