Save your local economy...
three stores at a time.
Think about which three independently owned businesses
you’d miss most if they were gone.
Stop in and say hello. Pick up a little something that will make someone smile.Your contribution is what keeps those businesses around.
If just half the employed U.S. population spent $50 each month in independently owned businesses, their purchases would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue.*
Imagine the positive impact if 3/4 of the employed population did that.
For every $100 spent in independently owned stores,$68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures.
If you spend that in a national chain,only $43 stays here. Spend it online and nothing comes home.
The number of people it takes to start the trend....YOU.
