SOMERSET-PULASKI COUNTY Chamber BUY Local Program
Shop Local is a Chamber initiative encouraging consumers to shop local and support the Pulaski County business community. There are countless ways businesses can get involved in Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce’s Shop Local program.
The number one priority of this campaign is to change local consumer attitudes about how shopping locally can stimulate economic activity, assist in entrepreneurship development, create jobs, generate tax dollars for streets, police and fire protection and generate dollars for nonprofits from Little League to United Way.
The goal of this program is 100% participation on Chamber retailers in the Buy Local Program.
WHAT CONSUMERS CAN DO
Buying local puts your hard-earned dollars to work right here in your community.
Keep Recycling Your Dollar
By choosing to re-circulate your dollars in the Somerset-Pulaski County, you play an important role in keeping our regional economy strong, creating jobs and providing vital tax revenue that supports things like road repair, police and fire protection.
Keep Our Community Strong
When local businesses flourish, they can continue their support of important community projects and charitable organizations.
Keep Our Economy Strong
For every one dollar spent locally you can have a positive impact of $3.00. If we all do that it will have a measurable effect on helping our local economy recover from the recent recession.
Keep Your Neighbors Working
The Somerset-Pulaski County is a robust region, with thousands of companies open for business and eager to assist you—large and small, franchises and locally-owned, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for.
Buy Local is a mindset.
You do have a choice and you can make a difference.
