The Flower Mound Chamber of Commerce and Town of Flower Mound are launching a Shop Local initiative to help stimulate the economy and promote the importance of shopping local. As part of this initiative, we’re hosting a Shop Local Week from Nov. 1-7 to encourage residents and visitors to shop, dine, and play in Flower Mound.
Do you own a business in Flower Mound? We’d love for you to sign up to participate in Shop Local Week – and in our larger Shop Local initiative.
Participation is free, and as a result, your business will benefit from advertisement through our website, social media, and via various Chamber and Town communication channels. To participate, CLICK HERE.
You’ll see in the form that we ask for a link to your business’ website or social media page, where you’ll host information about your special deal. That way, if your deals ever change, you don’t have to coordinate with us to edit the information on the site.
Once registered, your business name, information, photo, and the link to your deal will be displayed on our website. You’ll also receive a confirmation email from us with some digital assets you can use throughout the campaign (draft social media posts, logos, graphics) and more information on next steps. We’ll be delivering some printed products to you, including a door decal you can place in your windows to indicate you are a participant in the program.
If you have not received your window decal, you are welcome to stop by the Flower Mound Chamber office to pick it up. The Chamber is located at 700 Parker Square, Suite #100, Flower Mound, Texas, or give us a call at 972-539-0500.
Throughout Shop Local Week from Nov. 1-7, participating businesses will be offering special deals and discounts. Find their offers by visiting our Shop, Dine, and Play tabs and clicking on the businesses’ links.
Not only will you snag great deals just in time for the holidays, but if you participate throughout the week, you'll be entered to win cash prizes! We'll be watching for social media posts each day of Shop Local Week that use the hashtag #ShopLocalFM. Here's how to enter:
Monday Funday (Nov. 1): Check in at your favorite place to have fun (ex: gym, playing golf, shopping). Take a photo and post it using #ShopLocalFM
Tasty Tuesday (Nov. 2): Check in at your favorite place to eat. Take a photo and post it using #ShopLocalFM

A name will be drawn each day to win $100 cash for participating. At the end of the week, all posts that used the hashtag will be entered to win additional cash prizes. The Town and Chamber will announce winners on our Shop Local Facebook page and will attempt to contact each winner. Winners will need to stop by the Flower Mound Chamber office (700 Parker Square, Suite #100, Flower Mound, Texas) to pick up their cash prizes.
