This initiative aims to boost the local economy, create a stronger sense of community, and celebrate the unique charm of Southwest Riverside County.

By supporting local shops and services, we can ensure Southwest Riverside County remains vibrant and resilient. We encourage everyone to make a conscious effort to 'Shop Small This Season' and all year round."

As we approach the holiday season, the Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber of Commerce recognizes the importance of supporting small businesses that are the backbone of our local community. By shopping locally, residents can make a meaningful impact on the businesses and entrepreneurs who make our cities thrive.

“The City of Murrieta recognizes the value of shopping locally and celebrating our small business community as they bring innovation, jobs, and new products and services to our community.  We thank the Chamber of Commerce for their work to bring this community together!” says Scott Agajanian, City of Murrieta Director of Economic Development.

The "Shop Small This Season" campaign will kick off with a series of exciting events and initiatives, including:
