Catch Des Moines and the Greater Des Moines Partnership announced a 7-Day DSM Local Challenge to encourage residents to commit to exclusively shop local businesses for seven days, from June 25 – July 1. The Adel Partners Chamber is committed to encouraging our residents to shop local in Adel and DeSoto.


To participate in the Adel Local 7-Day Challenge, participants are encouraged to post on social media and challenge three friends to join in. Then, throughout the seven-day challenge, participants are asked to post pictures on social media using #AdelLocalChallenge and share how, why and where they shopped local. Participants can also use the Adel Local Challenge badge, found on the Adel Partners Chamber Facebook page and on Instagram, to share on their own social media to show support and challenge others.
