Commit to Choose Local
Are you willing to Commit to Choose Local?
This region doesn’t just survive in adversity—we thrive. To choose local is to keep our dollars local. We built the nation’s steel industry, and when the industry declined, we built a new economy in its place. Whatever the world throws at us, it only makes us stronger. And in the face of our current challenge, buying locally is a powerful tool for keeping our communities strong and resilient.
When you Commit to Choose Local you:
- keep more of your hard-earned dollars circulating here among our friends and neighbors.
- help your friends and neighbors remain employed.
- open the door for small business growth.
- see purposeful quality and craftsmanship come to life.
- support your community and local creators.
- connect with members of your community.
- educate your friends and family about the effects choosing local businesses has on our economy.
- facilitate sustainable impacts on people, the environment, and our region.
