2022 Holiday Shopping Guide

Orange County Economic Development Partnership is putting together our Annual Holiday Shopping Guide.

In an effort to support our small business community we will be including shops, both brick & mortar and e-commerce, as well as restaurants, and upcoming holiday shopping events/bazaars! Your listing in this guide will be a complimentary service.

What we're asking from you is any specials, discounts, or shopping events you'll be hosting November through December so we can include that information in the guide. We will be distributing these guides to area businesses for community members to pick up. Visit French Lick West Baden (Orange County Tourism) will create a special section on their website to list these special offerings as well. This is a team approach to help spread the word about SHOP LOCAL efforts in Orange County.

Please respond to clankford@ocedp.com by November 4th with details. Let us know if you have any questions about either of these efforts.
