Shop Roane Program

Shop Roane is the buy-local program run by the Roane County Chamber for years, to help spread the word about the importance of shopping local.  Initiatives such as the Shopping Spree Contest held the weeks leading up to Christmas, drives shoppers to participating businesses for a chance to win cash prizes; while on Super Saturday - the Saturday after Thanksgiving nationally known as Shop Small Saturday - we challenge everyone to spend at least $50 at a local business.  Chamber member retailers are specifically promoted on that day, and throughout the year, as they are the businesses investing in their community through membership.  Visit the Roane Chamber Member Directory for a complete list of members by category or by name.

Jingle & Mingle Market November 8, 2020!

Jingle & Mingle Market is a new initiative in 2020 to help our local shops and vendors kick off the holiday shopping season.  Join us for an afternoon of shopping with your favorite local merchants at Roane County’s largest event center, The Barn at Maple Creek in Kingston on Sunday, November 8 from 12 to 5 pm!  This is a FREE shopping event and open to the public, with the first 300 guests/families receiving a special Jingle & Mingle Market shopping bag filled with safety items such as Roane Strong mask and hand sanitizer.  A program with a list of vendors and a map of the venue will also be provided so you won't miss anything!

We are currently accepting sponsors and vendors for this event.  For more information and applications visit the Jingle & Mingle Market webpage.

Shopping Spree Contest

One of the most popular campaigns the Roane Chamber does annually is the Shopping Spree Contest.  Local Chamber retailers can participate to be a contest entry location for a minimal cost that goes toward the cash prizes and advertising for the contest.  The Chamber provides the participating businesses entry forms and box that customers can then enter to win several cash prizes.  The contest runs the weeks leading up to Christmas, with the winners being awarded in time to finish up their Christmas shopping locally.  Click here for more information on the Shopping Spree Contest.

Show your Love for Local Cover Photo

'Showing Your Love For Local,' our newest Shop Roane campaign, kicked off Spring 2020 to encourage our residents to shop locally at Chamber member businesses during the pandemic, a time when shopping local has never been more important.  Our Chamber member retailers were listed to the right to give the community a list of businesses who needed their love.   In fact, search #ShowYourLoveForLocal or #LoveForRoane or #ShopRoane on instagram, facebook and twitter and see the love our community showed our local businesses during a critical time!  The Coronavirus continues to threaten our way of life, and not only to us as individuals but to all of our locally owned businesses that keep our communities, our state, and our nation going.

Forward Together, dedicated to promoting and supporting ALL Roane County businesses, is another initiative that came out of the pandemic.  With the Shop Local message being more important than ever to save our local economy, the Roane Alliance staff created a Facebook group to bring the community and businesses together to help each other.  With over 1,000 members, and that was just in the first couple of months, we hope that this group stays a resource to help local businesses promote and announce what makes them special in hopes other business owners, residents and visitors will show their love for local!  The Roane Alliance is dedicated to promoting this group, so please join Forward Together Facebook Groupand help us #UniteRoane and move our county forward!
