About the event
When you spend your dollars at locally owned retail businesses, more money returns to your local economy than if you spend that same dollar at a chain store. According to Civic Economics, when you spend a dollar at an independent business, about 48 cents returns to your local economy. (Spend it at a chain store and only 14 cents return; spend it at an online giant and only pennies return.) That 48 cents recirculate through a local economy, generating ripple effects that strengthen jobs, charitable contributions, and community prosperity. Capitalizing on this local multiplier effect is key to creating jobs and wealth in our community.
