Pelham Chamber of Commerce And Meridian Risk Management Launch #Shoppelham Pledge

To Encourage Local Holiday Shopping

The Pelham Chamber of Commerce and Meridian Risk Management (www.meridianrisk.com) are joining forces to launch the inaugural #shoppelham pledge to encourage local residents to support Pelham’s small businesses by shopping and eating locally through the holiday season.  The collaborative social media campaign will run November 1st through December 31st and all participants will be entered to win a $100 cash prize to boost their local shopping. For added inspiration, the Chamber of Commerce is creating a comprehensive digital Pelham Gift Guide and working with local small business owners to come up with their “Top Ten” holiday gift lists.


“From one-of-a kind retail stores and family-owned businesses that have called Pelham home for generations, to restaurants and eateries that please every palate, you don’t have to look farther than our community for all of your holiday shopping and eating,” said Cristina Chianese, president of the Pelham Chamber of Commerce.  “We hope that the #shoppelham pledge inspires people to explore, support, and get to know the people and places that make Pelham stand out from the Westchester crowd and we are tremendously grateful to Meridian Risk Management for backing this initiative.”


“One of the main principles of our business is a deep-rooted commitment to community,” said Joe Solimine Jr., founder and president of Meridian Risk Management. “Small business owners take huge risks when opening their doors in the best of times – and the pandemic has created a whole new set of challenges. Teaming up with the Pelham Chamber of Commerce on the #shoppelham pledge campaign was a welcome opportunity to support our vibrant business community and have fun doing it!”
