Shop More Local Advantages

Being a Shop More Local Partner is more than giving you a sticker for your window. As the region recovers from Matthew, supporting local businesses will help the whole community as spending that stays local provides local returns. Thanks to research we know that the advantage of spending with independent local retailers versus national chains is a 48% vs. 14% recirculation rate. Independent restaurants hold a 65% to 30% edge.

  • Online Presence on ShopMoreLocal.org

    No one knows your business better than you! Your online profile can include a logo, images, full description, contact information which will be easily accessed by consumers.

  • Community outreach

    Shop More Local isn’t a special Saturday in November, or a weeklong event in May. Our extensive advertising campaign keeps our message in front of consumers via our monthly ads that name all our partners, to billboards, radio and TV, online and social media presence and newsletters. In-store advertising collateral promotes Shop More Local to all your customers.

  • Access to e-commerce

    Just in time for the holidays, we’re offering an e-commerce platform for you to use FREE of charge. Place a few special gift items, a gift certificate, or discount items for those looking to shop local, and support the community.
