ThinkShopBuy…LOCAL encourages the Greater West Chester community to purchase goods and services from the local businesses of the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce. Our ThinkShopBuy…LOCAL app makes shopping easier than ever before with our innovative and free smart-phone app.
As a consumer, ThinkShopBuy…LOCAL can save you money by providing you with coupons on our web-based program that are valid at any of our Chamber member businesses, ensuring you the very best deals. When you shop LOCAL, $0.68 of every dollar is reinvested when you shop locally, compared that to $0.45 of regional purchases and nothing when purchased over the internet.
Not only can the ThinkShopBuy…LOCAL program help consumers cut back on their shopping spendings, but also provides consumers with convenience. The ThinkShopBuy…LOCAL app works as a directory listing, providing information of participating businesses in the Greater West Chester area. Consumers will find shopping categories broken up into different types that will provide you with the businesses details and a link to their website.

I’ve been attending the Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade with my father since I was a little girl. We’d always arrive early; he’d lift me to sit on the top of the mailbox so I could get a front row seat. This year we both downloaded the Chamber’s ThinkShopBuy…LOCAL mobile app while we were waiting for the festivities to begin. I was thrilled to win the gift card because I love all the wonderful stores and restaurants in West Chester!
On Saturday, November 29, I made it my mission, with three kids in tow, to support Downtown West Chester local businesses for Small Business Saturday. With the help of the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce’s ThinkShopBuy…LOCAL app, we were able to not only check in at 10 participating stores, but knock out a ton of holiday shopping! The best part about shopping local was the uniqueness of the gifts that I was able to purchase! I was able to schedule my annual office Christmas surprise, found children’s gifts, Pollyanna gifts, a mother-in-law gift, plus got some great ideas for the kids that I can pass on to Santa. We even ate lunch at a participating restaurant that we have never tried before and it was DELICIOUS! Small Business Saturday was a great opportunity to support local businesses, find great gifts, and most of all, have fun with my kids! Thanks.
