Shop with your heart and wallet and support your local businesses and local economy this fall. You will make your community and local economy stronger in so many ways.
September is traditionally the slowest shopping month of the year. Let your business community know you support them by shopping local in September! Downtown Winter Garden will be having a September Sidewalk Sale the last weekend in of the month. September 27th through the 29th. Please show your love and shop locally that weekend.
November will officially be designated Shop Small Month with Saturday, November 24th being Winter Garden's Shop Small Saturday with an all-day celebration in Downtown Winter Garden.
Buy Local Winter Garden is an awareness program to build support for local businesses through education, marketing, and promotion. The most important action we can take to improve our local economy is to support our local businesses.
Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. By supporting our local businesses, more of the money you spend is recycled within the local economy benefiting every facet of the community.
During the holidays, remember to shop locally. The month of December is a busy shopping month and shoppers tend to become stressed trying to manage the shopping with all the other things going on. Remember your local businesses during the month of December and feel good about the season.
For every dollar spent locally, 45cents stays right here according to Civic Economics, an Austin-based firm.
