Shop Small Neighborhood Champion

Shop Small Neighborhood Champion

The Four Oaks Chamber of Commerce has been chosen as a Small Business Saturday Neighborhood Champion through the American Express Shop Small campaign.  This is an exciting opportunity for the Chamber as it gives us additional resources to share with our community to encourage local shopping this holiday season.  Shop Small is about more than just shopping at small businesses. It’s a cause that helps to support local economies and promote vibrant, diverse communities. It’s also a nationwide movement fueled by shoppers, business owners, and organizers who come together and celebrate the community because they know it matters.  Small businesses play a key role in helping communities thrive. By shopping or dining at your favorite local places throughout the year, you’re showing your support for small businesses and making a positive impact in your community.

To launch Small Business Saturday please join us at the Chamber for breakfast snacks, giveaways, and information about participating small businesses.  How can you get involved?  If you are a local business please reach out to us!  Large businesses can also get involved by supporting your community and sponsoring the shop local movement.  And each and every one of us can support our local businesses by shopping local throughout the holiday season.  We look forward to seeing everyone shopping local in Four Oaks!  Keep an eye out for more details about Four Oaks Shop Small event plans in the coming weeks.

A New and Improved Business Directory

A New and Improved Business Directory

The Four Oaks Chamber of Commerce is always working to build and grow the businesses of the greater Four Oaks area.  The Chamber office receives calls every day from people looking for specific types of businesses in the area and we are always happy to direct those people out to our members.  The business directory on the Chamber website is another tool for our community to use to locate area businesses.  The new and improved business directory has member businesses broken down by category so that a person looking for a specific type of business will easily be able to identify what the Four Oaks area has to offer.  To further market our member businesses we have designed the directory to link directly to the business’ website or Facebook page.   We know this tool will be used by local residents as well as people traveling through the area and are eager for all area businesses to be a part of the directory.  Part of the mission of the Four Oaks Chamber of Commerce is to promote area businesses in order to aide economic growth.  We believe this tool will do just that.

If you are a member business on the directory and want any adjustments made to your listing please don’t hesitate to contact Amber England at the Chamber office at (919) 963-4004.  If you are not on the business directory and are interested in being added please contact us regarding Chamber membership.

28th Annual Acorn Festival

28th Annual Acorn Festival

This past weekend brought the 28th Annual Acorn Festival to downtown Four Oaks.  The festival consisted of over 40 vendors, children’s activities, food, entertainment, and plenty of fellowship.  The festival, which was made possible by many local sponsors and contributors, brought large crowds to the Four Oaks area.  The annual Acorn Festival is an important opportunity to bring together our community but also to support our local businesses.  Several Main St. businesses felt they had an increase in traffic due to the crowd brought to Main St. by the antique car show.  Some businesses who are Chamber Members used their complimentary vendor table in Barbour’s Grove Park while other’s chose to remain at their store fronts to greet customers.  We are excited to see what future events hold for our community and for our area businesses.  If you have any feedback about the Acorn Festival or recommendations for future events please contact Amber England, Chamber Director, at 910-963-4004.
