Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce Launches New Campaign
To Help Support Local Businesses During COVID19 Pandemic
Lawton, OK – March 19, 2020--- The impact of COVID19 has been felt throughout the Lawton Fort Sill community and surrounding areas and the Lawton Fort Sill Chamber is launching a new campaign to assist with connecting residents with local businesses and support for business owners.
The Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce launched a new media campaign: Keep Calm, Shop Local. The campaign was designed to highlight the specific needs of local small businesses that have been impacted due to the COVID19 pandemic.
“We are calling on our residents to help support our local businesses affected”, said Dr. Sylvia Burgess, Interim President & CEO of the Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce. “There are many ways to show support, from ordering to-go options at local restaurants to purchasing gift cards from a local business or simply visiting their online story to shop remotely”.
The Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce has created a webpage, and Facebook page, Keep Calm and Shop Small—Support Southwest Oklahoma Business, to enable any business or resident to share updates on products and services that will be available for purchase while maintaining social distancing. Additionally, through the new Chamber App, residents can sign up to receive free alerts on the latest updates in the community.
