‘Menifee Forward’ campaign encourages residents to shop local

The City of Menifee announced that it’s partnering with local businesses and the Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce in a new shop local campaign, “Menifee Forward,” as a way to encourage Menifee residents to shop and support local Menifee businesses and bring awareness to the importance of shopping local during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Local businesses, whether small, mid-size, franchise, or corporate, are struggling with stay-at-home orders that have closed their doors, reduce occupancy, and has kept some customers away,” said Menifee Economic Development Director Gina Gonzalez. “Menifee Forward” seeks to provide residents with deals and choices, provided by our partnering local businesses, to choose from as a way to support and strengthen their own community and ultimately, sustain the businesses that have worked hard to open here in Menifee.”

The new campaign is a commitment by the city and chamber, using a number of resources and marketing tools aimed at bolstering Menifee merchants during a time when businesses are closed, half occupancy, and needing support. The new shop local campaign includes:

  • Website for featured news/promotions
  • Signage for businesses to remind residents to shop local
  • Social media, public relations for promotions and community engagement with photography features
  • MeniFREEwards – give back program $$$
  • Direct advertising for awareness
  • Restaurant and Personal Service Business Listings
  • Open safety guidelines
  • CARE Resource Information
  • Employment Jobs Board (Employers/Employees); to submit a job posting, email [email protected].

“We have an enormous responsibility to our local businesses to do all we can to get them through this,” said Mayor Bill Zimmerman. “Menifee is a caring community and clearly recognizes the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on our local businesses, and it is an all hands on deck effort to ensure that our businesses have the resources, and patrons to stay strong and weather the storm.”
