Arvest Bank is excited to once again launch its “Eat, Drink, Shop Local” social media campaign. This version will feature more than 20 small businesses across Arvest’s four-state footprint.

The “Eat, Drink, Shop Local” campaigns began more than five years ago to encourage customers to shop at local establishments during the holiday season and they now serve as friendly reminders for customers and bank associates to support local businesses when possible.

Additionally, the campaigns have evolved into a fun way for local small business customers to promote their businesses.

“Our customers are always excited to talk about their businesses and what they do and what sets them apart,” said Karen Gray, marketing manager for Arvest in Fayetteville, Ark. “It’s a fun way to get to know these customers.”

Likewise, the campaign typically results in extra attention and increased social media following for the businesses that are featured. Arvest also encourages you to follow our Facebook and Instagram pages to show your support and stay up to date on bank happenings.

Perhaps most importantly, though, the “Eat, Drink, Shop Local” campaigns are designed to show Arvest’s commitment to small business in the communities we serve.

“We want our followers to know that small business is important to what we do and what happens in their daily lives,” Gray said.
