Go Local This Holiday Season
Did you know every dollar spent at independent businesses is returned threefold to your local economy? Or that small businesses create two out of three new U.S. jobs annually? So when you patronize local establishments, you’re not only putting your hard-earned dollars to work in your community, you’re supporting the economic engines that fuel our national economy.
And locally sourced goods and services like those found right here in Jefferson County are often crafted by local artisans and are exclusive to our region, making for memorable gift-giving during the holidays and beyond.
If you prefer your gifts without a shiny bow then how about gifting an “experience” to watch a local band, dine at a family-run restaurant, or attend a holiday event with friends and family.
Celebrations outside the home, including holiday entertaining and socializing, represent roughly 40 percent of total holiday spending and are another way to support small businesses and boost the local economy.
Show support for local entrepreneurs and small businesses this holiday season and throughout the year and GO LOCAL !
