11th annual Buy Local Season
November 1st – December 31st
It’s that magical time of year! Time to CHOOSE our LOCAL business community throughout our 11th annual Buy Local Season.
You know that feeling you get when you go into a local shop or visit their website and find the perfect, unique gift for a loved one? You walk away with a little pep in your step and know that you’ve done something good – not just for your gift-recipient but for the neighbors you’ve supported by making that purchase. And you’ve kept THREE TIMES more of your dollars circulating in our local economy instead of leaving the community than if you had bought from a national chain or online mega-store.
Make the SHIFT in your holiday spending this year. Pledge to shift 10% or more of your spending on gifts and holiday hosting to local businesses.
Explore participating certified local businesses and our Bid or Buy Local silent auction (live online from Nov 1 – Dec 10)!
