Did you know that by shifting just 10 percent of one county’s spending from big-box stores to locally owned businesses we could add nearly 1,600 jobs and almost $140 million to the economy? And did you know that nearly 80 percent of every dollar you spend at big-box stores goes straight out of town?
It’s in our power to improve our region, when we buy local. But how do we know what’s locally owned? We’ve taken the time to assemble a directory of our locally owned businesses. Join us in celebrating our new catalog.
