Buy Local Lincoln County
If every household in Lincoln County shifted just $44.57 of the discretionary spending they already spend online or out of the county to a local business, roughly $10 million in additional funds, $4 million in additional wages, and over 120 jobs could be brought into or remain within Lincoln County. Keep in mind that the $44.57 is per household, not per person.
Formed on January 8, 2009, the Buy Local Lincoln County Association was created with the intent of spreading the message of why buying local is so important. Our all-volunteer Board of Directors is comprised of eleven members, who select among them the President, President-Elect, and Secretary/Treasurer.
Our mission is twofold:
1) To help Lincoln County residents understand the power of their spending and its impact on the local economy.
2) To help drive more sales to Lincoln County businesses by encouraging them to become more local-consumer-friendly.
Buy Local is not anti-chain store spending… we are pro-Lincoln County spending. Rather than spend your money on-line or across the county line, we want you to at least consider spending it here whenever possible. Locally-owned businesses give you a bigger bang-for-the-buck economically, but chain store businesses inside Lincoln County help our economy, too. We encourage you to support all our businesses, and help “Keep the GREEN in Lincoln County.”
