Shop Local!!

Save your local economy…      three stores at a time.

                           the 3/50 project

  3   Think about which three independently owned businesses you’d miss most if they were gone. Stop in and say hello.   Pick up a little something that will make someone smile.  Your contribution is what keeps those businesses around.

50   If just half the employed U.S. population spent $50 each month in independently owned businesses, their purchases would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue.*  Imagine the positive impact if 3/4 of the employed population did that.

68   For every $100 spent in independently owned stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays here. Spend it online and nothing comes home.

1   The number of people it takes to start the trend…you.

Pick 3. Spend 50. Save your local economy.
