According to Greenwood Chamber of Commerce Director, Tanya Taylor, the Chamber has started a new program designed to draw people to local businesses. Tour Greenwood Tuesdays is a quarterly event that will have its inaugural event on March 6.
Participating businesses will remain open from 5 to 9 pm and offer specials and refreshments to their customers. Each business will also provide a list of participating businesses for the guests to visit. If the guest visits over half of the participants they will be entered into a drawing for a prize. Winners will be announced on social media.
Taylor stated that she will approach the Greenwood A&P to request funds to advertise this event that will draw visitors from out of town. Tour Greenwood Tuesdays will be advertised in newspapers, radio stations and the Chamber website.
The event will not be limited to just retail store. All businesses in town are encouraged to join in.
The first events will be on Mar. 6, Jun.5, Sept. 4 and Dec. 4.
“You can choose one event at a time or all,” said Taylor. “We must have a commitment from our businesses one month in advance in order to properly promote each one.”
This event will be at no cost to the businesses. Those interested in participating need to call the chamber at 996-6357 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and an application.
