Here's how we can support our local economy - Sonoma County Wine Country Lifestyle, Santa Rosa, CA
My fellow Activerainer, Mike Caruso, posted a really interesting idea to save the our local economy. I thought it was brilliant and wanted to pass it on to my Sonoma County Wine Country Lifestyle readers. If we all do our part for our local business owners, maybe we can kick start our entire Santa Rosa, CA Market! It's worth a shot! Check out Mike's post and let me know what you think.
PLEASE, support YOUR local economy!
The idea is to commit $50 each month to locally owned businesses. Maybe that means rethinking where you currently invest your money, opting to pick up that birthday card or pair of jeans in a locally owned business instead of the big box you’ve been going to. Or maybe it means eating out once a month because you realize slamming the brakes on all spending stalls economic recovery. And it means not shopping online, 99.99999% of online sales generate nothing for the community you live in. It’s just that simple.
