Together we can help our area and local businesses thrive.
By: Veronica Quesenberry
At Compass Resorts, we’re a local business all about our roots. We’ve planted ourselves in the panhandle and made other local businesses part of our family tree. And we want to help you support local businesses, too! If you’re a local, by staying with us for a “stay-cation” you support local businesses through investing your extra time, money, and love right here at home. And now, you can enjoy a stay-cation with a discount because we're offering a 10% off discount for all Florida residents who book a stay at our on-site location at The Palms of Destin Resort & Conference Center.
So, how does staying with Compass help you support local businesses? The same way our tourist friends do when they visit. The money and time you invest during a vacation is essential to the area’s economy and success. By posting on social media about your trip, you’re promoting local businesses, too. And by staying with us, you’ll be central to all panhandle-renowned restaurants, shopping centers, and activities. It may even surprise you how much you might discover even though you’re a resident here.
In fact, our staff are all home-grown or adopted locals with the best recommendations on what to do during your stay with us. And, they’re conveniently on-site ready to answer any questions or provide any information. Plus, we recommend local businesses on our website under our blog, things to do, and events sections. We all want to help cultivate the local businesses that make the panhandle such a remarkable place to stay.
Imagine if you, a local, were to invest your extra time and money in your hometown like a tourist. It would put money and publicity into locally owned and operated businesses. Our economy would expand. Individual people and families would flourish. And, you might even discover something you’ve never heard of right in your own backyard!
