VAN WERT – The Van Wert Chamber of Commerce is partnering with First Bank of Berne to bring to the community a shop local campaign.

Each business that signs up will receive a t-shirt, paid for by the First Bank of Berne to display and sell at their business. Each order taken for a shirt will put money back into the business owners’ pockets. They will be sponsoring prizes, contests, and surprises along the way.

Please submit pictures to chamber@vanwertchamber.com or tag them in the picture and use the hashtag #shoplocalVW.

Make sure to get your business signed up by June 1 to drive more customers into your business. Call the VW Chamber Office at 419-238-4390 to get registered.

The Chamber thanks Sister’s Embroidery & More for partnering with them to make the shirts possible.
