This holiday season—and beyond— Durham Tourism, along with the Durham Region Joint Chambers of Commerce and Boards of Trade, have a special request for residents: Shop where you live, shop in Durham.

The goal of the Shop Where You Live campaign is to raise awareness that buying local will have a big impact for Durham’s economy. The campaign encourages residents to shop local across Durham’s eight area municipalities for their holiday gift-giving.

Shoppers can help support the campaign by using the hashtag #ShopInDurham when sharing their local holiday finds on social media.

The Region of Durham is proclaiming November 28 to December 4 as “Shop in Durham Week,” to celebrate the incredible and diverse business community across Durham. The week will kick-off with a flag raising ceremony on November 29.
