Area Organizations Help Local Businesses With Shop Local Website
The Shop Local Initiative was created to help keep more money from local residents in the local economy. Martinsville Uptown, the Chamber of Commerce and the EDC have partnered to create a website available for all local businesses in Martinsville - Henry County (including home-based businesses).
The website launched in March of 2013 and has a business directory arranged by business category and a search option to search by keywords and descriptions. Businesses also have the ability to list products for sale and there is a "local deals" section that highlights specials offered by local businesses.
A basic listing for each business is absolutely free!! If you would like to include a photo or logo and a more detailed business description which will help website visitors find your business more easily, or have individual employees that would like their own listing (realtors or insurance agents for example), there is a $20 annual fee per upgraded listing. Click here to register your local company on the ShopLocalMHC.com site.
If you have any questions about the survey, the Shop Local Initiative or the website, please call Martinsville Uptown at 632-5688.
