City Of Duluth Launches ‘Locally Rooted’ Campaign For Local Businesses
In an effort highlight local businesses dedicated to serving both residents and visitors, the City Of Duluth has launched a new campaign called 'Locally Rooted'.
According to the City, this new campaign will put the spotlight on a wide variety of local businesses, including those in the retail, restaurant, and hospitality industries. Two businesses will be chosen each week and they will be promoted on the City Of Duluth Facebook page with a post that includes a photo of the business owner, a quote, and a link to the business’ social media pages.
“Due to COVID-19, Duluth businesses have faced a unique and difficult set of challenges. Locally Rooted’s goal is to lift-up Duluth businesses and to encourage Duluthians to shop locally,” stated Chris Fleege, Director of Planning and Economic
Development. “There are several safe ways to support Duluth businesses such as in-person shopping, curbside pick-up, or online ordering. Our staff continues to reach out to businesses to connect them with resources and find ways to assist. We are
excited to introduce the public to businesses in Duluth that they may not have known existed before and turn them into their new favorite place to shop.”
The 'Locally Rooted' campaign officially began on Monday, October 19. The City announced the campaign from Bailey Builds, which is also the first business chosen to be spotlighted.
Businesses interested in being featured are invited to reach out via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. City staff will also be on the lookout for businesses to feature within each district of the city.
