Live Life Local
The Moultrie-Colquitt County Chamber of Commerce has kicked off a new marketing campaign, Live, Life, Local- Think Moultrie First. You may have noticed the new billboards that have been installed on 319 in Norman Park and on Highway 133 across from Spence Field. The Chamber is encouraging members of our community to support local businesses. We sometimes get out of the habit of shopping locally and look to larger retailers and malls to meet our shopping needs, when what we are looking for is right down the street. You can save your gas and time by shopping in the local businesses here at home.
By supporting the local businesses in our county you are investing in the future of our community. When shopping locally, you simultaneously create jobs, fund more city services and support the schools through sales tax. Buying local helps grow other businesses as well as our region’s tax base.
Unique businesses create character and help create a vital downtown, by employing knowledgeable staff, offering special services like gift-wrapping, and reinvesting profits in the community. Local stores are more likely to carry locally produced foods, which supports local agriculture. Supporting them preserves the character of our community.
Shopping locally is important for economic sustainability. Small local businesses are the largest employers’ nationally and they tend to do business with other local businesses. Local businesses in downtown centers require comparatively little infrastructure investment and make more efficient use of public services. When you shop locally you are supporting members of your own community who are also vested in the health and success of the community. By shopping there you are asking them to stay and grow. So take a moment and Think Moultrie First before you begin your shopping experience. Live, Life, Local and watch your community thrive.
