The business association SWWABL (Southwest Washington Association of Business Leaders) is set to unveil a new phase of its grassroots “buy local” campaign, with an eight-minute testimonial video featuring local business professionals and community leaders.
SWWABL plans to preview the video at tonight’s Shop Local Business Showcase – a free event starting at 4 p.m. at the Red Lion Hotel Vancouver at the Quay.
The video begins with a simple, straight-to-the-point question: Do we get it?
“It's a question posted to the community,” said SWWABL member and Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce CEO Kelly Parker. “It's not meant to be in your face or anything. It's just asking do we get it that every dollar we spend down in Oregon doesn't come back to benefit folks here in Washington?”
Can’t wait for tonight?
Here’s a look at the business association’s video in advance of tonight’s public unveiling.
