The Great American Buy Local Day began as a yearly initiative to support small businesses. On April 7th, all Americans are encouraged to shop local, get a service done, buy gift cards, give positive reviews online, refer friends to the small businesses in their communities, and support local businesses in other creative ways. There is always something you can do to help these businesses, even from your own home. We encourage you to support small businesses as often as you can. They need our help now more than ever. Buying local doesn’t only strengthen the economy, but it supports families and communities. Please visit our website for any further information.
