BUY IT HERE! Everyone does back to school shopping somewhere, but have you ever thought about the boost it would give our local economy if we all did our shopping right here in Okeechobee? On average when money is spent with a local merchant 48% goes back into the community through businesses sponsoring community events, activities, sports leagues, scholarships and simply buying groceries, gas, etc.
Think about the community around you and remember who sponsored your child’s sports team or club and ask yourself if the Mall would do the same for you!
The Chamber of Commerce of Okeechobee County and Okeechobee Mainstreet are teaming up to bring you a one of a kind back to school event. We are ready for back to school and we hope you are too! Join in our Stroll for School Savings as businesses all around Okeechobee participate in this sidewalk sale event. The time for good old fashion deals and sales are back and we want you to be a part of it. Fill out or download the form at the bottom of this page to participate and check the deadlines below! Questions call Mariah or Paulette at (863) 467-6246, Brittany (863) 357-6246.
