Why $pend the Holidays with Us?
According to a study
completed by Civic Economics in 2008, just a small shift in
behavior locally can have an tremendous potential economic impact
on our community. If every person in Bartholomew County made a
conscious effort, just one time out of ten before they left the
community or shop online they chose to shop locally, it would
create an additional $15.8 Million in economic activity. This 10%
shift in consumer spending could also lead to the creation of 187
additional jobs created in Bartholomew County.
The Chamber of Commerce on behalf of our retail members and
restaurants members is trying to increase awareness about how this
modest change in consumer behavior can lead to significant impact.
In the upcoming months please watch for the logo above as you shop
and dine to make a big difference in our economy.
