#BeAGoodNeighbor Member Spotlight: Batch
Meet Batch, a small but mighty company working hard to curate and deliver locally made, artisanal goods, from Nashville and all across the South. They offer meaningful, specialized gifts featuring high-quality, handcrafted items from their growing network of purveyors. Each batch they ship is hand-packed (with a handwritten note if you like) by a real human being.
Read about how this local small business is opening safely and smartly in the interview below with Sam Davidson, the Co-founder and CEO of Batch.
Q: Who is Batch and what should we know about you?
A: For over seven years, Batch has been curating the best locally made items for gifts that are perfect for any occasion. We work with small businesses across the country in order to provide thoughtful gifts in any price range.
Q: What has been the most valuable part about being a member of the Chamber?
A: The connection to community is second to none. Both before and now during the pandemic, the Chamber is able to gather businesses and individuals together for education and connection that has long lasting benefits.
Q: What is your business doing to reopen safely?
A: While we closed our retail store permanently, we have remained committed to our online and corporate customers. Our fulfillment warehouse is operating safely at full capacity with our team in masks and gloves so that your orders get out the door safely and quickly.
Q: Do you have any special offers to tell guests?
A: You bet! Our Chamber friends can visit https://batchusa.com/pages/nashchamber and see our current discounts for Chamber members, such as FREE logo boxes with your gifts and FREE logo stationery to include your message in each gift. Or, if shopping online, use code NASHCHAMBER at checkout for 10% off your first order!
Q: What would you tell a guest who is wanting to come visit?
A: Check out our neighborhoods. Nashville is a city of neighborhoods and the best places to walk, eat, drink, and play are outside of the city center.
We'd also love folks to check out SmallBusinessPledge.org. This is a way any of us can make a commitment to support small businesses nearby. With close to 100,000 small businesses closed due the pandemic, now is the time to show your support (and when you do, we'll even mail you a free sticker).
Q: Since the pandemic began, what has been your favorite place to visit or your favorite activity?
A: I love the game "Stay away from the idiots not wearing masks" in the grocery store. It's good fun.

Be A Good Neighbor: Eat & Sip, Shop Stay Play
The Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce recently launched a new series called Be a Good Neighbor: Eat & Sip, Shop, Stay, Play. This is the second part of the #BeAGoodNeighbor campaign focused on supporting our local businesses. We are launching this series to spotlight businesses who are taking the proper step to safely re-open, build consumer confidence and champion economic recovery.
In these unprecedented times, we know it is important for us to stand together and support each other. We want everyone to #BeAGoodNeighbor by supporting local businesses. This webpage provides a comprehensive list of Nashville area businesses who are currently still open for business either in a to-go capacity, online capacity, or through modified hours. Let's make a conscious effort to support these businesses through these turbulent times. Use #BeAGoodNeighbor on social media whenever you shop local or order take-out.
