Local Owned BusinessSupport local owned business by: 

1) Telling your contacts on Social Media that you will be shopping local on Saturday

2) Shop local on Saturday, even buying a gift card will help

3) Let people know that you shopped local on your Social Media page (if  you can post a picture of the store on your Social Media Page)

To quote Buy Local Raleigh: “Locally-owned and independently operated businesses offer so many benefits that make our community better and economy stronger. They …

• Have more character
• Create more jobs
• Offer better customer service
• Require less infrastructure investment
• Make a smaller footprint on the environment
• Increase competition, diversity and choices
• Keep our dollars circulating locally”
