200. Explore the New “Barrington Online Marketplace”
After working for many months behind-the-scenes, we have exciting news to share today! We’ve created a NEW PLACE at 365Barrington.com where you can find information about the many things to do, people to meet and places to go in zip code 60010. So, without further delay, we’re excited to introduce you to the new Barrington Online Marketplace. We’ve only just begun to build this new local resource. Our vision is that the Barrington Online Marketplace will constantly evolve into a colorful collage that captures the community’s character, one story at a time.
The Barrington Online Marketplace is simply a new way to explore and discover Barrington, Illinois. We’ve created these first categories based on our existing content and will add more categories moving forward. There’s so much that makes up our community so, when it comes to creating categories, the possibilities are endless. And we always welcome your suggestions!
The Barrington Online Marketplace is designed to offer two things:
1. A new way for readers to learn more about the stories behind local people, places and organizations.
2. A new way for people to promote their offerings and initiatives to a growing & targeted audience that’s highly invested in Barrington.
Our job is to continue to find and publish details about the many great things happening here. We have a passion for sharing stories about people doing cool things in our community. And this new feature allows us to better organize the information we share so it’s easier for you to follow and find.
Here’s how it works: On Mondays, we’ll be introducing you to the latest members of our marketplace and sending an email to people who’ve signed up for our newsletter, “The 365 Barrington Buzz”. If you’d like to receive those emails, which will also include information about upcoming events, we’d be happy to add you to our list of subscribers. Just enter your email here and click “Submit”.
You’ll find the new community resource at 365Barrington.com/Marketplace. To have your business, organization or event featured in the new Marketplace,visit 365Barrington.com/Advertise for more information or call Liz at 847-691-3150.
