Shop Lakeland Event
August 7, 2010
The City of Lakeland is planning it’s first annual Shop Lakeland event to be held August 7 to coincide with the Tennessee Tax Free holiday.
The City of Lakeland recognizes how important its business community is to the sustainability of the City’s fiscal structure. Lakeland does not have a local property tax; a portion of sales tax revenue generated from local businesses make up a significant portion of the City’s annual budget.
The Shop Lakeland event was created to promote Lakeland businesses by showcasing many of the products and services that are offered right here in the City. This is a great opportunity to explore what Lakeland businesses have to offer.
Shop Lakeland is a day-long sales event held at merchants and businesses throughout Lakeland. There will be special promotions, sidewalk sales, free giveaways, and prize drawings. Many Lakeland businesses are offering special sales or discounts on the day of the event. You can view a list of all participating businesses at www.ShopLakelandTN.org.
As part of the event, the Lakeland Area Chamber of Commerce will be giving away an Apple iPad. You can pick up an entry form at any of the participating merchants. And yes, the more businesses you visit, the more chances you have to win.
So come out and show your support for our Lakeland businesses on August 7th. You can find more information at
www.ShopLakelandTN.org. Or contact Lakeland City Hall at 867-2717.
