Coal Region Canary Announces a Christmas Small Business Showcase

Promote your business ahead of the holiday shopping season!

As the festive season twinkles on the horizon here in Schuylkill County, Coal Region Canary is embarking on a journey to celebrate the backbone of our community – the local businesses.

We understand that every small business has a story, a dream, and a unique flair that adds color to the fabric of our neighborhoods. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity for local entrepreneurs to share their stories and connect with the community in a truly special way: Coal Region Canary’s Small Business Christmas Showcase!

We invite you, the dedicated business owners of Schuylkill County, to step into the spotlight through our new feature: a Q&A style article designed to showcase your business in its full holiday glory. Think of it as a conversation between you and the heart of our community – your customers.

We are not just looking for answers; we’re seeking stories, passions, and the personal touches that make your business stand out.

Here’s how it works: We’ve crafted a set of thought-provoking questions to capture the essence of what makes your business unique. These questions are not just inquiries; they are a canvas for you to paint a picture of your business journey, ethos, and what you offer to the festive shoppers. From the origin of your business idea to the special offerings for this Christmas, we want to hear it all.

Once you submit your responses (and photos) through our user-friendly form, the team at Coal Region Canary will weave your answers into a captivating Q&A article. This isn’t just another promotional piece; it’s a story – your story – told with care and shared with our entire community.

The aim? To not only highlight what you offer but to encourage our readers to embrace the joy of shopping local this Christmas season.

And these stories will live on long after the Christmas season is over. After the trees have all come down and the decorations packed away, we’ll transform these stories into an article that will stand on their own the rest of the year. Oh, did we forget to mention … this is TOTALLY FREE?!?!

By participating, you’re not just filling out a form. You’re opening a door to new customers, renewed connections, and a chance to be at the forefront of the ‘Shop Local’ movement during the most wonderful time of the year. Let’s show our community the strength, diversity, and vibrancy of local businesses.
