LUBBOCK, Texas – The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce announced today the launch of its LBK Local Challenge campaign. The campaign encourages participation on social media from individuals and businesses alike to support staying, shopping and spending locally while practicing social distancing.
LBK Local Challenge Rules:
- Post a photo to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter showing how you support local small business and tag three friends to do the same.
- Use the verbiage “I support (name of business)” and the hashtag #LBKlocalchallenge
- Cut and paste these instructions within your post.
LBK Local Challenge ideas include takeout or delivery orders from a local restaurant, online gift card purchases from local retailers and restaurants, creating online reviews for a local business, and engaging with local businesses on their social networks. The Chamber is encouraging participation from individuals and businesses alike.
“The Lubbock community needs to respond now as best we can to support one another and especially our local businesses. Our economy is undergoing tremendous stress and we are working to help overcome this Coronavirus pandemic,” said Eddie McBride, Lubbock Chamber President and CEO. “We are all in this together and I hope all of you accept this #LBKlocalchallenge.”
