Tuscaloosa and Northport have had shop local campaigns in the past but have just launched new ad formats created by Totalcom Marketing. The ads are in partnership with the Chamber and are fun with a secondary component aimed at educating citizens about how important their dollar is to increasing the local quality of life.
These campaigns are different because they invite retailers and service providers to take part in making them successful by using website banners, social media material, posters, point of sale tents, and bag stuffers.
The City of Tuscaloosa’s campaign is T-Town All The Time. The City of Northport's campaign is Shop Northport, Now.
Get the components mentioned above on our retailers resource pages. Click here for Tuscaloosa and here for Northport. Call 391.0561 for more info.
A large Chamber delegation visited Washington, DC Oct. 9–11. Highlights were a breakfast with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and a luncheon with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Minority Leader. Also, local issues were discussed with legislators and our group enjoyed a beautiful evening cruise on the Potomac and sight-seeing. Glad to offer our members this opportunity for interaction! Click here to see a few photos from the trip. Big thanks to our sponsors: Capital Growth Buchalter, Inc., Merrill Lynch, D.T. & Freight Co., Inc., TTL Inc., and Southland Benefit Solutions.

Any member or employee of a member firm can apply. Applications are being accepted through Nov. 30. Interviews will be conducted in Dec. Click here to download the application. Please email completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org.
