Every week, we'll shine the SPOTLIGHT on a local business in the "Shop Burlington County First" program, the "buy local" initiative created by Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders and its regional partners, the Burlington County Bridge Commission and the Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Bruce Garganio invites
you to "Shop Burlington County First": "Join in our efforts to energize the economy in Burlington County, keep it growing, and create new jobs."

Hanukkah begins tomorrow and there only are 14 shopping days ‘til Christmas. But that still is enough time to check out the great deals and convenience offered by your downtown independently owned retailers, and to find those special gifts, many at clearance prices.
Think about some of the tangible advantages of buying local:
Many of those your local businesses have created special offers for this season. Some deals offered by Shop Burlington County First members include:
(offers valid through the end of 2017 unless otherwise indicated):
If each household in Burlington County spent just $10 more each month at Burlco businesses, the resulting annual impact to the local economy would be about $19.9 MILLION DOLLARS!
For every $100 spent locally in independently owned stores, shops and restaurants, $44 to $83 is re-circulated in the local economy. When $100 is spent in national chains, only $14 to $43 stays in the local economy.
