Buy Local Month - Hampton Roads
Nov 20, 2019
November 15th through December 15th is Buy Local Month in Hampton Roads! The goal is to raise awareness of the importance of supporting local businesses and celebrating the positive impact they have on our community.
When you support locally owned businesses, 45% of those dollars spent stay within our community, as opposed to only 14% when choosing a non-local business. When you use local services and products, you are investing in your community and this helps to create a healthier local economy, which means improved infrastructure, better schools, business growth, diversity and an increased quality of life. Plus, local businesses help improve the communities by giving back twice as much as non-local businesses to local non-profit organizations through donations and volunteer work. We encourage everyone to stop by your local establishments and invest in the Hampton Roads community by supporting local businesses.
