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."

BordentownSpotlight.com is a local internet community business guide dedicated to helping local businesses and services link to the community.
Their goal is to see local business in the Bordentown area prosper by supporting the effort associated with shopping local.
Shopping local creates jobs, nurtures the community and supports businesses that support you.
Buying local is an investment in the community as local businesses are usually owned by people who live in and support your community, giving back by sponsoring events and organizations.
Local businesses often provide superior customer service because they have trained staff who have a better understanding of their products and services.
For every $100 spent at a locally owned business, $68 stays in the local economy compared to only $43 if spent at a national chain. And you can help the environment by saving fuel and patronizing your downtown shop owners.
Remember that entrepreneurship spurs America's economic innovation and prosperity, and serves as a key means for families to move out of low-wage jobs and into the middle class.
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.
