SOUTHINGTON — A town Facebook forum has sold all advertising space for the remainder of the year only days after the concept was announced.

Local businesses will advertise on the cover photo and “pinned” post of the Facebook forum Southington Talks for $250 a month. Proceeds will be donated to local charities and non-profits.

“What’s really significant about this opportunity is that it’s allowing small, local businesses to access thousands of potential customers at a very reasonable rate with an easy donation to their favorite local charity,” forum administrator Stacey Dolan said in a Facebook post.

Local businesses Art Rich Photography, Kenzie Kakes and Rita’s have purchased advertising space for months this year.

Created about four years ago, Southington Talks has about 16,500 members. On average, the group receives 10 to 15 new requests to join each day.
