About Us












Shop Bellevue Ohio is a grassroots group comprised of Bellevue business owners, community activists, educators, and individuals in the immediate Bellevue, Ohio area.

The Shop Bellevue Ohio Committee’s primary purpose is to promote and support the Bellevue area’s small businesses and elevate the awareness of these assets to Bellevue.



Our goals

  • To develop a locally vested and operated resource platform dedicated to promoting, supporting, and elevating awareness of the Bellevue area’s small businesses.  
  • To make Bellevue a more vibrant and attractive place whose appeal promotes small business.
  • To help make Bellevue a better place to shop, live, learn, stay and play.      



We will achieve these goals by


  • Implementing promotions and publicity of our community through highly strategic marketing and advertising venues
  • Utilizing our new multi-dimensional website as our fundamental engine to spotlight Bellevue.  Among its numerous cutting edge marketing features is a community calendar, community blog, complete directory of Bellevue businesses, current weather conditions, an opt-in newsletter sign up to enable us to send out messages to everyone posted.  Our website also employs broad social media marketing outlets boasting Bellevue entities and designed with the latest responsive mobile technology capabilities.  Our website performs as Bellevue’s local, state-wide and national billboard showcasing our city 24 hours per day, 365 days per year!  
  • We generate funds by offering special advertising opportunities at an extremely low, yearly price.  By purchasing one of these low-cost, well-designed and Internet-spanning marketplace advertisements, you are not only investing in yourself but you are also helping Bellevue be all that it can be!  Please contact the Shop Bellevue Ohio Committee for more information on how you too can reap the benefits from our dynamic and multi-level marketing capabilities. Complete our contact form here or This email address is being protected from spambots.
