Wabash Marketplace Introduces New Campaign, “Small Business, Big Heart” 


Celebrate Wabash’s Small Businesses

Wabash Marketplace has launched a new campaign to celebrate Wabash’s small businesses called “Small Business, Big Heart.” During this unusual year, local businesses have rallied to keep Downtown Wabash an awesome place! Small businesses are owned by local families that pour their heart and soul into downtown. It’s time to celebrate them!  

Each week, Wabash Marketplace will be highlighting two businesses or nonprofits in Downtown Wabash on social media platforms. Follow along on their Facebook and Instagram accounts (@WabashMarketplace). 

The campaign rolled out with an introduction video by Wabash Marketplace explaining the concept on October 2. The first businesses featured are Filament Tattoo and Chapman’s Brewing Company. The video highlights share fun facts about their business, why they are located in downtown, and why they love small businesses. Stay tuned for upcoming videos featuring Visit Wabash County, C&J Raxx, Wabash County YMCA, Honeywell Foundation, Market Street Grill, Wabash County Museum, Ellen’s Bridal, and more!

They want the public to participate, too!  Downtown businesses are distributing custom stickers for you to show your support. Wear them with pride or stick them on your favorite belongings. You can change your Facebook profile picture with a free Small Business, Big Heart photo frame. (Instructions: Open Facebook app, click your profile, click camera button to edit profile picture, select “add frame,” search for Small Business, Big Heart.) While you are visiting Downtown Wabash, take a photo with the new “Small Business, Big Heart” photo props. Two photo props are available in downtown at the featured businesses of the week. 

Join us in celebrating the small businesses of Downtown Wabash during this campaign and into the holiday season!
