Last year 104 million shoppers spent a record high of $17.8 billion on Small Business Saturday. This Small Business Saturday we encourage you to Shop Local! A number of our Chamber members are offering special deals, discounts, and giveaways for shoppers who decide to spend their money in our great little community.

    According to Civil Economics: Andersonville Study of Retail Economics – for every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community. There are plenty of reasons to shop local: 
    You create local jobs
    You invest in and reward entrepreneurship
    You build relationships with your neighbors 
    Sales taxes collected from your purchases stay in the community
    You minimize economic impact by consuming less fuel and packaging
    The money you spend at local businesses has a BIG impact. Everyone benefits—from your neighbors who own and operate local businesses to the municipalities who maintain your roads and fund the school system. Everyone benefits, including you! When you shop local you help create a healthier economy and a happier community.
