Traveling show stops in Knoxville to promote local, small businesses

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Twenty-five local business owners got the chance to show off their spring products Saturday at West Town Mall.

It's part of a national event, the "Chocolate and Shopping Show."

The event gives shoppers local samples, fashion demonstrations, and special deals.

Organizers say it's also a great way to help the local economy.

"The show is just how we showcase the local businesses," said CEO and Director Lisa Cain. "But we do stuff in the back end as well. And that's our purpose, to help them grow their business."

The show plans to come back to Knoxville in October.
