The DETAILS…

Who.

THINK LOCAL, a local non profit. Our Mission:

● Re-energize the Local Economy
● Help Maintain Our Local Charm
● Organize Collaborative Marketing Efforts
● Develop Public Education and Events

Think Local is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization working to support and preserve locally owned, independent businesses in the northern Palm Beach County area.

Join us as we promote My Town Tuesday!  A new program designed to highlight our locally owned businesses as we educate and encourage the public about the value and benefit of shopping, dining and hiring local.

What.

On My Town Tuesdays, THINK LOCAL!
As you shop, dine and hire today, stop by local businesses as much as possible. Our definition of LOCAL is a locally owned and operated business that is controlled and managed in majority by those residing in Palm Beach County. The benefit is that this simple shift in spending assists with keeping our local economy STRONG.

Have a favorite LOCAL business? SHOP, DINE or HIRE them today and show them some love! For those of you who are tech savvy, list them and tag them on our THINK LOCAL PBC Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Let’s bring awareness to the hidden gems in our community so everyone can support a LOCAL
business TODAY!

BUSINESS OWNERS, show our LOCALS your stuff. Download our free printable materials and hand out THINK LOCAL flyers to your customers, invite them to come back every Tuesday, consider Tuesday specials or Tuesday events and have fun being creative as we promote My Town Tuesdays!

Why.

The results are a stronger local economy. Economic studies show that local recirculation of revenue from chain stores is $14 of every $100 dollars spent.

Let’s build our local economy together! If you spend money with local businesses, the results are dramatic for our local economy. Local recirculation of revenue from independent LOCAL businesses keeps about $48 of every $100 spent right here in our community.  “This money is being re-spent locally in the form of payroll, goods and services purchased from other local businesses, lunch purchased by local employees, profits spent locally by owners, and donations to area charities.  This makes a tremendous impact on our local economy.” says Katherine Scarim, original board member of Think Local.
