GULFPORT, FL – October 11, 2023– Following the resounding success of the Shop Local Holiday Campaign in 2022, the Gulfport Merchants Chamber is excited to announce the launch of their 2023 Shop Local Campaign. With a commitment to supporting local businesses and fostering community spirit, the Chamber invites residents and visitors alike to join in the celebration of the holiday season through conscious and intentional shopping.
Last year's Shop Local Holiday Campaign, which culminated in the 3rd Saturday IndieFaire on December 17th, saw enthusiastic participation from the Gulfport community. The Gulfport Merchants Chamber encouraged everyone to embrace the spirit of the season by patronizing local businesses.
