Shop Local 757 is a community initiative started by a branding agency in Virginia Beach, Virginia called MSP Design Group.
During the Coronavirus crisis, we saw too many of our customers impacted by the restrictions put on social engagement, and we wanted a way to give back.
Shop Local 757 works in 3 ways:
- It gives marketing support to local businesses. In particular, we offer a way to sell electronic gift cards online at no additional cost, giving them a better chance to bring in revenue while their doors must be shut or customers must be limited.
- It gives community members a way to give back with out leaving their homes. We can show our support by purchasing t-shirts, yard signs and decals that proudly display the Shop Local message, the profits of which go to benefit neighbors in need via the local food bank.
- It gives local production facility workers a way to keep working. The more people support the cause, the more people can work.
We want to use our social channels to drive awareness of our local economies, now during this crisis and beyond, where we will all continue to work together to make our community one of the best in the world.
