• Shop Southern Illinois Kicks off 2018 Season

    October 16, 2018
    Carbondale Ill.- Shop Southern Illinois is back for the 2018 holiday season! Shopping in local communities promotes employment, boosts local economies, and provides communities with thriving businesses. This holiday season, Shop Southern Illinois asks our communities to take the pledge to shop locally by using the #IbuySI Facebook profile frames.
    We encourage residents to Like “Shop Southern Illinois” on Facebook and follow “@ShopSouthernIL” on Twitter. Weekly drawings will be posted on these accounts with prizes from various chambers. Winners will be chosen from users who like, share, and comment on prize posts.
    Shop Southern Illinois will be hosting “Snapchat takeovers” with participating chamber members. Follow @ShopSouthernIll on Snapchat to see local businesses across Southern Illinois.
    Shop Southern Illinois is a campaign created by regional chambers of commerce to encourage our residents to shop locally. The campaign began in 2009 and is in its tenth year of existence.
