Do you know about the 3/50 project? What three independently owned local businesses would you miss if they disappeared? If half the employed population spent $50 each month at locally owned independent businesses, it would generate more than 42.6 billion in revenue! For each $100 spent locally, $68 is returned to the community through payroll and taxes, etc. Contrast that with spending $100 at a national chain, only $43 stays local.
Make it your goal to stop in more often at your local brick and mortar to say hello and make a purchase- our community depends on it!
