Share Your Porterville Pride: Shop Local • Dine Local • Be Local
The City of Porterville collaborates with the Porterville Chamber, local business owners, local content creators, and other organizations to support local commerce and tourism. The Shop Local campaign is all about supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs. It’s also about taking pride in what makes Porterville memorable and a place people want to visit for shopping, entertainment, and adventure.
The Shop Local Porterville campaign has two other components: Dine Local and Be Local. That's because we want this campaign to be inclusive of all our community members and partners. Take a look at our materials and create your own based on what aspect of Porterville you'd like to show off. If you are a non-profit serving this area, perhaps the "Be Local" component of the campaign works well for you. Whether you're a local business, shop, restaurant or community member or partner, please join us on the fun!
