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:


Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Holiday Shopping


Shop Burlington County First


Representing Shop Burlington County First


While we have been reminded for several weeks already that the holiday season is coming, well, it’s HERE!!

Thursday is Thanksgiving, November 24th is Black Friday and the next day is Small Business Saturday. 

As this holiday shopping season kicks into high gear, consider Shopping Burlington County First, supporting your local businesses and downtowns that support your community throughout the year, employ more of your neighbors than big box stores, and offer high quality goods at fair prices.

Wanna share some of your best-kept secrets? Give someone a gift certificate to your favorite local restaurant, florist or retailer of specialty items. And don’t forget the local breweries that are popping up around the county.

Why fight the crowds when you can find what you want—and more—in your downtown shops and stores?

And plan to enjoy the many family events scheduled in the next few weeks, many of which are listed below in the Events Calendar. Those business owners who are members of the local organizations are the ones who organize and provide most of the community festivities listed below. Give back and patronize your downtown businesses!

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.
