About Buy Local Lincoln County
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. The Board of Directors is comprised of eleven members,
who select among them the President, President-Elect, and Secretary/Treasurer. The
Buy Local Lincoln County Association is registered in the State of Oregon
as a nonprofit corporation.
Our mission has two major focus areas:
1) To help Lincoln County residents understand the power of their spending dollar 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.
We are 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
spend 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.”
