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." 

This Week's Spotlight on:

Final Holiday Shopping and Welcoming in 2018

Shop Burlington County First


Representing Shop Burlington County First


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:

  • Parking – usually nearby so you don’t have to drive around parking lots in shopping centers fighting for a spot
  • Customer Service – more intimate experience with a sales associate nearby to answer questions or help you find a product
  • No crowds – avoid shopping cart injuries and long lines at checkout
  • Help Yourself – studies show that 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!

Many of those your local businesses have created special offers for this season. Some deals offered by Shop Burlington County First members include:

Why Buy Local?

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.

How we all benefit by shopping Burlington County:

  • Keep Burlington County's economy strong and growing.
  • Embrace local businesses, which create 80% of new jobs and often provide better wages and benefits
  • Save time and money and protect the environment. Shopping locally saves travel time and gas money
  • Get great products and services at competitive prices at any of Burlington County's 8,000 one-of-a-kind, independent businesses 
  • Create a sense of community. Community groups get 350% more support from local business owners than non-locally owned businesses.
