Buy Local Initiatives

In many communities, Buy Local initiatives and campaigns are increasing in momentum. Support for Small Business and buying local programs often go hand-in-hand. The Small Business Saturday movement, held the Saturday after Thanksgiving, is another way to support local businesses. The term "Buy Local" is fairly broad and each community may determine their own policies and guidelines for determining this definition. The Think Local campaign by the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce & Industry (Pa.) lists the advantages of local purchasing, demonstrating that:
  • More money stays in the community.
  • Local jobs are created and sustained.
  • The local community and economy are strengthened.
  • Quality of life is improved.
  • Customer service is enhanced.
