We Buy Local

#LocalStimulUS

What: Now more than ever, local businesses need our support. #LocalStimulUS is a new campaign to encourage our community to buy local as residents receive COVID-19 stimulus checks and navigate these trying times.

Why: Every time we make a purchase at a local business, we support local jobs and help preserve the local character of our community. In fact, 67 cents of every dollar we spend at a local business stays in our community. When we spend it here, we keep it here. So keep it local, y'all!

Find a Local Business: Many local businesses are still operating but with safety adjustments, including virtual classes, online ordering, and delivery, take-out, or curbside services. Find a local business now: 

How: While designed for the Greater Chapel Hill-Carrboro community, the #LocalStimulUS campaign is flexible for use by communities everywhere. The campaign includes a logo, tagline "Keep it local, y'all!," hashtags #LocalStimulUS and #WeBuyLocal, and websites, LocalStimulUS.org and WeBuyLocal.org. Access the suite of editable logos and more information at LocalStimulUS.org.
