Shop locally. Spend locally. Invest locally.

Buying and shopping locally helps independent businesses, which in turn helps all of us shape our community’s distinct flavor, personality and character. When you shop local you make a personal investment in your neighborhood and community. For every dollar spent, 67 cents is reinvested into your community — 44 cents goes to business owners and their employees and 23 cents is invested into other businesses and services in the community. We’re all in this together.
