LOVE Your Community This Valentine’s Day!
February is the “month of love” and Valentine’s Day is coming up fast! Everyone is focused on shopping for their sweetheart, parents are coming up with fun Valentine ideas for their kids, and teachers are decking out their classrooms with hearts and fun projects to celebrate the season. In all these festivities, what if you could also show your community some love?? Your local businesses feed into your community each day, providing products, services, and experiences that set apart your town and make it special. Winter Haven, Lakeland, Bartow, Lake Wales, Auburndale, and the surrounding areas are home to some of the best shopping and dining options in Central Florida, but these hidden gems can often go unnoticed. Unless, that is, people like YOU choose to make them part of your celebrations.
This Valentine’s Day, show your community businesses some love by…
This one is easy! From cakes, cookies, and chocolates, to the perfect piece of jewelry for your sweetheart, local stores have the most unique gifts, and often depend on other nearby crafters and producers for their inventory. No big box brands here! Your gifts will be special, because they show you cared enough to take time to shop in person, and will have even more meaning because they’re a piece of home!
Making them part of your big day.
It’s easy to take advantage of chain restaurants and their big Valentine advertisements for cheaper “dinners for two” on Valentine’s day. What if we told you though, that local restaurants often have deals just as good, and with GREAT food! There are so many great restaurants to suit every taste and style here in Polk County. Make it a family affair or a romantic night out!
Sharing the love!
This is one time we encourage you to talk about what you’re buying, where you’re taking your Valentine, and just how amazing your holiday was! While we’re not encouraging you to brag, we are encouraging you to share your experiences with these local businesses. This is free advertisement for them, and helps them get exposure and clout in our cities and towns. Leave them a review, talk about their products or services, tag them on social media. Get their name out there and show them some love!
We hope your Valentine’s Day is amazing, and we look forward to seeing all the ways you show our local businesses some love, not just during February but throughout the year ahead. Carroll Marshall Insurance is proud to be part of the Winter Haven community, and it’s our pleasure to work with both local residents and local businesses.
Happy Valentine’s Day from everyone at Carroll Marshall!
