“Shop & Greet” Offers Unique “Everyone Shops” Experience to Support Local Businesses  

With a strong commitment to helping others succeed and the business background to support her passion, Karen Bachert first launched the “Shop & Greet” in her home town of South Bend, Indiana in March of 2013.  Naming the expo the MICHIANA SHOP & GREET, the event represents all of Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan and brings together a strong group of sponsors and vendors who share Bachert’s entrepreneurial passion and commitment to supporting local business.  This year’s Michiana Shop & Greet will return to Saint Mary’s Campus – Gillespie Center from 4-9:00pm on March 20, 2014.   

It’s really a straight forward concept that turns a typical business or community expo into a unique event.    And, it all happens because participants in the “Shop & Greet” (sponsors, vendors and attendees), all come to the Expo ready to shop and to do business right in their own community.  It starts with the $10 in Michiana Bucks that everyone receives at the door.  For attendees, its part of their $15 ticket price and it means everyone coming to the “Shop & Greet” is focused on doing business in Michiana. Even vendors and sponsor get Michiana Bucks and join in finding great values and shopping right here in our community.  With the Michiana Bucks in hand, the browsing begins and for many $10 to spend quickly turns into much more.  It’s hard to resist the great values offered at every booth.
