Keep the Cheer Here and Save Our Local Economy
Make a conscious choice to purchase what you need throughout the year and especially during the holiday season at Independent Local Businesses in the Northern Berkshire towns of Adams, Clarksburg, Florida, North Adams, Savoy, Williamstown and others...
Join the Northern Berkshire Transition and the 3/50 Project in promoting and supporting our locally owned independent businesses.
The 3/50 Project has a Simple Message
Think of three businesses you'd miss if they went away. Stop in. Say hello. Pick up a little something that makes you smile. That's what keeps them around, after all.
SPEND $50 a month among these businesses
No more than you would spend in your normal monthly shopping. Just consider what Locally Owned Independent Business you can find the goods you're looking for and make those purchases there. Avoid the big box and nationally franchised stores as they ship your dollars out of the community.
Contact Jay Walsh at Northern Berkshire Transition firstname.lastname@example.org or call 413-329-1755 .
Consider The 3/50 Project for strengthening our Northern Berkshire economy.
This campaign may be a means to ensure the growth, stability, and survival of our locally owned and operated businesses and local economy.
REMEMBER - LOCALLY SPENT $$$ STAY LOCAL
For every $100 dollars spent at a Locally Owned Independent Business means $25 additional dollars circulating in the local economy. Dollars that pay for local jobs, pay local taxes and support your local schools, athletic programs and fundraising activities. ADD IT UP, it's a lot of money over the course of a year.
