The Searcy Regional Chamber of Commerce is launching a whole new way to shop local through a new online marketplace.
With online commerce becoming essential to small business survival, we have recognized how important e-commerce is for the businesses we serve, and for our community. It's imperative that we give local consumers, and customers near and far options to support Searcy businesses from the comfort of home. The new platform will enable our area businesses to sell online together and make it easy for customers to shop local businesses and make purchases all through one website. We've been out speaking to many of you and are happy to announce that the Searcy marketplace website IS READY for you to register to sell!
A few things about the site.

- There are no commissions, just your normal credit card processing fees.

Below is a file with a checklist with steps needed to get started on the site and a FAQ's handout that will answer many of the questions you may have. It also includes sponsorships information, contact the chamber if your company is interested in sponsoring the site.
We hope that you’ll take advantage of this right away so that we can begin promoting this resource to our community and beyond! After we get a base group of retailers, we will begin promoting the site on through Facebook ads, social media post, online ads, window clings, flyers in stores, and through e-blasts which goes to roughly 1,000 business leaders,
