I am so pleased to announce a new buy local campaign called #ShopCK. This campaign will promote shopping locally and will coincide now that retail businesses are re-opening or soon re-opening.

Below is a link to the first in a series of videos which will promote local shopping in Chatham-Kent:

The series of videos that will be released showcases businesses from every community in Chatham-Kent. Every area of CK will have local businesses featured.

There will be print and radio promotion. There will also be decals and other promotional items for retail stores to distribute and promote #ShopCK.

Please promote this widely. Please share on your social media accounts and please start adding the #ShopCK hashtag to all of your social media posts.

Thank you to our Economic Development team for launching this “buy local” campaign with short notice. Thank you to the Economic Recovery Task Force for identifying this as a priority. And thank you to all my team in Community Development for continuing to issue building permits, planning applications, and other development related initiatives to keep our economy moving forward throughout this Covid-19 crisis.

Finally, special thanks to you for forwarding this email and promoting #ShopCK.

John Norton, General Manager, Community Development | Municipality of Chatham-Kent
