You can support the cause and help strengthen the local economy by shopping at your friends’ and neighbors’ local stores. Purchase their products. Dine at their restaurants. Use their services. In turn, these locally owned and operated businesses will continually pump your hard-earned dollars back into the local economy by way of taxes, payrolls and purchases.
This means more money for new jobs, schools, roads, services and parks in your community.
Local business owners think money spent in our community should largely stay here.
“These locals aren’t just “moms and pops.” They’re all about family—brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, neighbors, friends—all the people who make Kingsport a wonderful place to live. They’re the folks who sing in the church choir, coach little leagues, and volunteer in the community on weekends.” Jeff Fleming, Kingsport City Manager
Be loyal and buy local.
