Emery County - Your First Choice
Sponsored by the Emery County Business Chamber. The Emery County Business Chamber is kicking off their Emery County: Your first choice shop at home campaign at the November Lunch and Learn on Nov. 16 in Green River at the Tamarisk Restaurant. Be present for details at the event. Shop at home and win prizes, and save money.
Glen Jensen, ECBC board member and local business owner is spearheading the campaign along with board members. Jensen said shopping local supports everyone in your community. Dollars spent in Emery County stay in Emery County. He has listed the top 10 reasons to stay home to shop.
$100 spent at locally owned stores generates $45 back into the Emery County economy. $100 spent outside the county generates $0 back into the Emery County economy. $100 spent at a big box store only generates $13 back into the economy, where the store is located. Locally owned businesses are committed to Emery County's prosperity, cities, schools, and people. Stores outside the county (especially big-box stores) do not care. Tens of thousands of dollars are generously donated from locally owned businesses to organizations in support of Emery County. You owe it to the local business owners to support them back. Local businesses will in turn be able to support even more organizations with a good cause. It costs $5.66 for every 10 miles driven in the average vehicle (AAA research), that's $36.79 from Castle Dale to Price and back, and $124.52 to travel to Provo and back...that does not include lunch. You cannot afford to keep driving so much now that you know the real costs of driving. Supporting local businesses will create more local jobs and a stronger local economy for you and your children. Supporting local businesses will generate more money for the local schools, parks, streets, and public works that we all enjoy. It is an economic advantage to communities that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character. Local ownership ensures that important decisions are made by people who live in the community and will feel the impacts of those decisions. The best social media is found at our local stores when we bump into our neighbors and friends. A real sense of community exists. You love where you live, you want to support the lifestyle, and you're loyal to your community. Jensen said these 10 reasons to shop in Emery County just make sense. Keep your dollars and your loyalty at your home stores.
To help our local businesses create an inviting environment for customers a customer service workshop will be presented at the November Lunch and Learn.
