May 7th to 12th is Economic Development Week
Many of our local businesses are owned and operated by people who live in this community and are invested in our community’s welfare and future. They provide our community with jobs. They aren’t just crucial drivers of our local economy; they are at the heart of our community. When you purchase at locally owned businesses rather than out of town-owned, more money is kept in the community. Purchasing local helps grow other businesses as well as the local tax base.
