Buy Local

"When we spend it here, we keep it here, so let's keep it local."

 

What: Shop small and support local businesses.

Why: Every time you make a purchase at a local business, you support local jobs and help preserve the local character of the community.

Fact: 67 cents of every dollar spent at a local business stays in the community (Small Business Economic Impact Study, American Express).

How: If you are a local resident:

  1. Buy local and encourage others to shop small, too.
  2. Spread the local love with a positive online review of a local business.
  3. Follow the Chamber on social media (facebooktwitterinstagram) and use the hashtags #ShopSmall, #BuyLocal, #LocalMatters, #SafeCommerce, and #TakeoutPledge.

How: If you are a small business owner or manager:

  1. Update your google listing so shoppers can find you, your store hours, and your Covid-conscious operations.
  2. Follow the Chamber on social media (facebooktwitterinstagram) and use the hashtags #ShopSmall, #BuyLocal, #LocalMatters, #SafeCommerce, and #TakeoutPledge.

Note About Safety: Our local business community is Covid-conscious and committed to operating safely. Many employers and employees are now Count on Me NC-certified
