Shop Hop Makes Holidays Ring for Local Retailers

The 14th Annual Silverton Shop Hop, sponsored by the Silverton Chamber of Commerce made a big impact for local retailers this season. Last year we had less than 50 forms turned in and this year we had almost 90.  Those 90 forms only represent the ones that were completed and turned in, not the many, many who started and didn't complete the hop.  

Of those who completed the form and turned it in - there were 594 purchases made.  Those purchases represent at least $8,900 spent locally this season.  Retailers were happy with this year's event.  Nick at Astonishing Adventures said "this was great for my business".  Shayla from Shayla Lynn Jewelers said "I've participated in this shop hop for several years and this was the best year yet".    

We thank all of the merchants that participated this year, and those HOPPERS that recognized that this is a fun way to shop local for the holiday season.  Congratulation to the winners and we are looking forward to other shop local events.
