For The Community
Support A Strong Community
Money spent at locally owned businesses puts 3 times more money back into the local economy than chain stores. The multiplier effect created by spending locally generates lasting impact on the prosperity of the New River Valley!
We support, promote, and strengthen independent locally owned businesses by educating our community about the importance of shopping locally and creating visibility through our Go Local Card discount program. We encourage a culture of consciously shopping locally by demonstrating how accessible, affordable and beneficial local business is to our unique community.
I’ve used it around town and it’s definitely saved me tons of money. — Kristina R.
