Palatine Businesses, PACC Members Invited to Participate in ‘Explore Palatine’ A village wide Business Expo and Sidewalk Sale On Saturday September 12, 2020, area businesses are encouraged to capitalize on this event in the hopes of increasing sales and gaining exposure.
Palatine Area Chamber of Commerce (PACC) will be hosting it's 3rd annual ‘Explore Palatine’ event. This village-wide initiative supports the local economy by encouraging area residents to explore, and in some cases discover businesses all over Palatine on this day, and whenever possible. Explore Palatine will take place Saturday, September 12, 2020 at Palatine-based business locations with hours that vary depending on the location. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
All Palatine businesses and PACC members are invited to participate in this event at no cost. Businesses can sign up at explorepalatine.org and are encouraged to offer sales, or feature other special offers. Yellow or gold balloons will be posted outside of participating locations to direct visitors and shoppers.
Explore Palatine is an outgrowth of PACC's 'Think Local' campaign. This event is open to all Palatine businesses (chamber of commerce members or not), in addition to all PACC members. It was created to generate awareness about all Palatine businesses and educating residents and business owners about the importance of keeping sales tax dollars in the community.
“As we all work through the ongoing pandemic, local businesses need our support now, more than ever. I invite all Palatine businesses and our chamber members to participate in this event and grow our strength in numbers,” said PACC Executive Director Steven Gaus “Our hope is that the Palatine and surrounding community members will mark their calendars and spread the word to continue to grow Explore Palatine.”
Businesses are encouraged to participate in this shopping event to increase exposure and awareness. PACC members who do not have locations in Palatine can still participate by setting up tables at shopping centers or strip mall locations within the village limits. Please contact Steven Gaus at 847-359-7200 for more information, and for sponsorship opportunities.
