Take The Pledge – Join The Movement

Your Choices Can Change Your Community. Take The Pledge. Join The Movement.

Make the choice to shop local and support locally-owned businesses. You can help make a difference in your community! Research shows that if you shift a portion of your spending from national chains and the Internet to independent locally-owned and operated businesses, you can have a dramatic effect on your local economy when you take the pledge and commit to shop local.

That’s because a significantly greater portion of the money you spend with local businesses stays in your community. This means more money for roads, schools, services and jobs. A small change in the way you shop can have a big impact on your community.

So take the pledge and join the movement to commit to shop local!

  1. Visit a locally owned and operated business once per week.
  2. Seek out a local business you’ve never been to, see what they have to offer!
  3. Buy a book at a corner book store.
  4. Eat lunch at that sandwich shop down the street
  5. Purchase a birthday present at a local gift shop.
  6. Buy ingredients for your next holiday dinner at a Farmer’s market.
  7. Work off that holiday dinner and join a local gym.
