Keep Charleston unique: Help grow local businesses

Many Thanks to Charleston Currents for publishing this article by our own Executive Director: Jamee Haley:

AUG. 22, 2011 - A recent trip to Asheville demonstrated what the future of the local movement in Charleston could be. The signs in the windows of the nearly all local-independent businesses that reside in the booming downtown, say "Local, it's the new black." This partnered with the "Love Asheville, Put Your Money Where Your Heart Is" shows the loyalty and commitment of a community to local independent businesses.
