Shop Local! Support the 3/50 Project
The call to action is simple. Select three independently owned businesses you’d be disappointed to see go and spend $50 at each store every month.
If half of the employed population did this, it would generate $42 billion in revenue. Another interesting fact about supporting local, independent businesses – for every $100 spent in independently owned stores, $68 returns to the community (through taxes, payroll and other expenditures). When that amount is spent at a national chain, only $43 stays in the community.
The 3/50 Project encourages all of us to do our part to try and sustain our local economy. So, we wanna know – which three local businesses would you hate to see go?
