You’re Invited to Join Monadnock Buy Local!
Submitted by Organizational Champion, Monadnock Buy Local
It may be easy to connect how small, locally-owned businesses support a healthy local economy – but have YOU connected the dots between small businesses and a healthy community? Researchers have. They found that counties with higher concentrations of locally-owned businesses have healthier citizens with lower mortality, obesity and diabetes rates. Monadnock Buy Local is nurturing the power of independent businesses right here in our region.
We invite you to join Monadnock Buy Local, a network of retailers, service providers, restaurateurs, non-profit organizations and more. We’re in our fourth year and we hope to connect with you, your business and your customers and clients.
While member surveys show that most of us joined Monadnock Buy Local to encourage our customers to “think local first” (and make locally-owned businesses their first choice), we also joined to help our local economy grow, meet like-minded business owners, and find ways to source more of our own products and services locally.
Our values may drive us to join – but we also enjoy many membership benefits, such as a listing in Monadnock Buy Local’s annual Buy Local Guide, that is distributed throughout the Monadnock Region, and group marketing opportunities during public education campaigns such as Plaid Friday.
