  • Shop Local Program

  • The Carmel Chamber of Commerce is excited to introduce its first ever Shop Local program! This program is designed to encourage our community to support local shops, restaurants and services. Small business represents over 99% of our nation’s economy and employs roughly 58 million people across the country. For every dollar spent in the community sixty eight cents stays local, which helps to keep folks employed and shop doors open, and it also translates into valuable tax revenue that communities need for road improvements, education and infrastructure. So everybody wins!

    The program will be year ‘round and will not only feature all of our local businesses, but will also provide valuable tools and resources for new businesses looking for helpful tips, existing businesses looking for marketing tools and visitors looking to learn more about our local retailers.
