The Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce is encouraging county residents to shop locally with their sponsored program, "Shop EC," which promotes local businesses in Edmonson County.
"When you can, please shop in Edmonson County," said Chamber Director Rhonda Clemmons. "As the holiday season approaches and Christmas shopping may be on your to-do list, always remember your hometown. Many goods and service providers offer gift certificates, as well as their goods for sale. We have new boutiques, and we have restaurants with gift certificates."
Clemmons said that in the county, hardware, hunting supplies, golf courses, lodging, and garden centers are all available. Gift certificates can even be purchased for salon services, and groceries.
"The Edmonson County Chamber Offers an Edmonson Chamber gift certificate, Clemmons said. "You can purchase them from Laura Lindsey at Bank of Edmonson County. It's actually formatted like a check and be used at any Edmonson County business that accepts checks. It’s a unique way to let the gift receiver decide where to use their gift certificate. Promotional signs will be placed around the community to remind us all to support our hometown every chance you can."
