Nice logo, but what's it mean?
It means you as a consumer save more. It means more traffic through the door for all local businesses. It means by shifting only 5% of your out-of-area purchases back into Byron, you become a major part of of the revitalization of your local Byron businesses. You'll join hundreds of people who are committed to creating jobs and boosting the local economic development of our City.
Who's behind the campaign?
The Build Byron/Buy Local campaign is made possible through the ongoing efforts of your Byron Area Chamber of Commerce. Local participating businesses will also offer rewards to all Build Byron/Buy Local Member Reward card holders.
And your goals are...?
There will be two ongoing themes which will guide this campaign. These are business-to-business purchases and individual-to-business purchases. The goal here is to shift just 5% of your purchases that are currently going outside of Byron back into the local community. We'll increase public awareness about the advantages of buying locally and how even a small impact of 5% can add jobs and strengthen our local economy.
How, exactly, would the Byron community be impacted?
Our friends and family are employed by small family-owned businesses as well as regional and national chains in Byron. All of these contribute to the local tax base which grows each time they add employees, open a satellite store or increase their business through your commitment to shift your spending locally. This all leads to new jobs, public services, parks and schools...and the list goes on!
