Hello Shop Local subscribers and participants! 

DID YOU KNOW??

  1. For every $100 spent at locally-owned businesses, $73 REMAINS in the local economy.
  2. When you shop locally-owned businesses, your money is recirculated over and over creating up to 75% MORE TAX REVENUE for our community and state. Tax revenue supports vital public, town, and county services as well as BRINGS NEW BUSINESSES to our area.
  3. Local merchants care more about INVESTMENT IN OUR COMMUNITY, therefore, donate to more local groups, schools, athletics and charities.
  4. Buying from local business CONSERVES ENERGY and resources in the form of less fuel for transportation.
  5. Your local purchases CREATE LOCAL JOBS
