The Ballard Chamber of Commerce is working on a new “buy local” campaign thanks to the Office of Economic Development. The Chamber and four other business organizations throughout the city were awarded the opportunity to work with a professional marketing firm to create the neighborhood-specific shopping campaign.
This campaign will be different than the “Tuesdays in Ballard” marketing campaign that the In Ballard Merchants Association is launching for the second year in a row. “In many respects this will actually complement very well with the work that In Ballard is doing reaching out to other communities,” Michelle Rosenthal the President of the Chamber told the Ballard District Council at a recent meeting. “The idea is to really build on the efforts that we’ve been doing lately in terms of reaching out to our local businesses, finding out what they need so we can figure out how best to help them.” Stay tuned for more information on this campaign.
