BE LOCAL. BUY LOCAL.
Supporting local businesses helps fuel the local economy and preserve the unique character of our area. Many studies have been conducted about the importance of buying local and supporting your neighbors. Local businesses are the largest source of new jobs across the country and help keep money circulating locally.
LET US HELP YOUR BUSINESS!
We encourage local businesses to join together for a unified cause, to invest in education and to inform the community on the importance of Buying Local. In partnership with members of the community, we collaborate to grow each member business. We can help you with resources to be more successful.
