On April 2, the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce launched its “I <3 GNV” campaign, a community-wide effort to show local businesses some love. During last month’s Operation Thank You event created to show appreciation for local businesses, volunteers and staff delivered the I <3 GNV decals to local businesses to be displayed. As part of the campaign, the Chamber launched radio, television and print ads to encourage residents to shop locally at businesses with the decal. I <3 GNV is an extension of the Gainesville Buy Local program, which is designed to encourage Gainesville-area residents to support local businesses. Visit www.iheartGNV.com or scan the QR codes on the decals to connect with other members and the community through the Chamber Facebook page.
