 Iberia Parish launches "Shop BERRY Small" for the month of May  
NEW IBERIA, La. --- The Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce its latest business initiative, Shop Berry Small. In partnership with City of New Iberia, Iberia Parish Convention & Visitors Bureau, and BestLife Iberia, local businesses have created month long promotions. Various deals are advertised through the chamber's social media and a listing of participating businesses is available on the Chamber's website and

"We're hoping to highlight the quality and diversity of shopping local. In addition, to adding to the local tax base and supporting our neighbor retailers, shopping local saves time and fuel" said Janet Faulk-Gonzales, CEO of GICC. "Leveraging the American Express 'Shop Small' campaign, we're promoting local shopping with a twist by playing off of 'Da Berry' nickname and launching Shop Berry Small." 

This campaign will be going on for the entire month of May. Any business in Iberia Parish interested in participating is encouraged to fill out a form at the Chamber's website at or call (337) 364-1836.

The Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce has been advocating for industry, promoting small business, and helping design business policies for businesses since 1939. Lead by a twenty-one member volunteer board of directors, who direct the Chamber's mission of improving the business environment so our members grow and prosper, the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce contributes to the economic development of the community, which ultimately enhances the quality of life.
