Chandler's economic development division received approval May 28 to launch a multifaceted I Choose Chandler marketing initiative to support local businesses.

The goal of the campaign is to "encourage residents to get back to patronizing Chandler businesses as they begin to reopen with safety measures in place," according to a news release from the city.

Additionally, the campaign will work to inform the community of the impact residents make when they choose to spend their money and volunteer their time in Chandler, according to the release.

“For businesses and entrepreneurs to succeed during this public health emergency, they need support from the entire community,” Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke said in the release. “This campaign will creatively showcase the impact residents make each time they choose to shop, dine, volunteer or donate in Chandler.”

The #iChooseChandler campaign will utilize a mix of traditional and digital media to engage residents and Chandler-based businesses, according to the city. The public is encouraged to connect and engage with Visit Chandler social media sites as well as other official city of Chandler media platforms to actively participate in the campaign, according to the city. The content will feature new ideas on different places to patronize, ways to show acts of kindness by giving to a nonprofit, a variety of local business features and opportunities for residents to share why they choose Chandler.
