Seeking info for (and input on) Shop SOBO directory

If you own a business based in Southborough, the Economic Development Committee wants to help promote it.

Last fall, the EDC published a directory of Southborough Businesses titled “Shop SOBO”. Now they are looking to update the Shop Local Business Directory for 2017-18.

Don’t let the “Shop” fool you into thinking this is purely a retail directory. Listing categories also cover business-to-business, medical services and more.

Before EDC publishes and post the updated listings, they are also seeking input on how to make it better. Responses are due by August 1st.

The committee asked me to share their announcement:

Southborough’s Economic Development Committee (EDC) is updating the list of Southborough businesses for the SHOP SOBO print and online Shop Local Business Directory 2017-2018. This Shop Local Directory was first released in October 2016, serves as the primer local resource for residents, businesses and local employees to shop local products and services in Southborough.
