VW independent/submitted information

The Van Wert Area Chamber of Commerce is partnering with First Bank of Berne to create a shop local campaign for the local community.

Each business that signs up will receive a t-shirt paid for by the First Bank of Berne to display and sell at the business. Moreover, each order taken for a shirt will put money back into a business owner’s pocket. The Chamber and First Bank of Berne will also be sponsoring prizes, contests and surprises along the way.

Businesses should submit photos to or tag the Chamber in the photo and use the hashtag #shoplocalVW.

Businesses wanting to participate should make sure they are signed up by June 1 to drive more customers their way. Call the Chamber Office at 419.238.4390 to register.

The Chamber also has a special “thank you” for Sister’s Embroidery & More for partnering to make this possible.
