Sign up for ‘Shop Farragut’


The town of Farragut invites local businesses to join the fifth annual “Shop Farragut” campaign, slated to run from Saturday, Nov. 20 to Friday, Dec. 31.

Hold a sale, offer a discount or participate in another related activity that will help attract Farragut citizens and the surrounding communities to buy, dine or stay in Farragut.

Deadline to register for the campaign is Monday, Nov. 1. 

The six-week “Shop Farragut” campaign is free to all businesses within town of Farragut limits.

The purpose of “Shop Farragut” is to promote and encourage patronage of Farragut businesses, therefore generating additional sales tax dollars, which fund roads, parks and other capital improvement projects within the Town.

The town of Farragut will be responsible for extensive advertising and promoting the campaign through its local media (print, radio and Charter cable), government cable channel (Charter & TDS), Web site (www.townoffarragut.org) and social media sites (Facebook and Twitter).

The Town’s Web site will feature the names of participating businesses and weekly discounts and coupons that will be updated four times during the campaign. In addition, the Town’s Web site will highlight special events hosted by participating businesses.

The Town also will provide high quality, glossy posters for each participating business to display at their location.


In addition to the free advertising, the Town once again will offer participating businesses the opportunity to have an extra special event sign during the six-week campaign.

This sign is in addition to the four special event signs allowed to Farragut businesses as part of the Town’s zoning ordinance.

However, a resolution adopted by the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen in September suspends any special event signage from Nov. 6–20 and Jan. 2–15, 2011, in order to highlight the “Shop Farragut” campaign during this time.

Following a series of meetings with Farragut businesses and Town volunteer committees, the campaign’s name was changed from “Buy in Farragut” to be more representative of its purpose and welcoming to the community and surrounding area.  

Businesses interested in joining the 2010 “Shop Farragut” campaign can access a registration form and more detailed information at www.townoffarragut.org or by contacting Sue Stuhl (sue.stuhl@townoffarragut.org) or Arleen Higginbotham (arleen.higginbotham@townoffarragut.org) at 865-966-7057.
