5th Annual Christmas Stroll/Small Business Days - Shop Local
||The Richmond Hill/Bryan County Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the city of Richmond Hill and the Richmond Hill Convention and Visitors Bureau are pleased to present: Christmas Stroll/ Small Business Days – Thursday, December 5th and Wednesday, December 18th this holiday season.
Local business have been asked to decorate their store-fronts for the holiday season and encouraged to extend their hours on Thursday December 5th and Wednesday December 18th to give the “locals” the opportunity to shop locally.
Why is promoting shopping locally so important? It’s because patronizing local stores and services keeps money in the community, which in turn is spent on other goods and services.
For every $100 spent in locally owned, independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures, according to the small-business advocacy group, The 3/50 Project. Local sales generate local taxes, which are used for basic government services such as fire and police protection, road repairs, parks and recreation services.
When planning where to spend your dollars, make a locally-owned business your first choice this holiday season, and beyond.
