the 3/50 project

3 What 3 independently owned businesses would you miss if they disappeared?
Stop in. Say hello.
Pick up something that brings a smile.
Your purchases are what keeps those businesses around.

50 If half the employed population spent $50 each month in locally
owned independent businesses, it would
generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue.
Imagine the impact if ¾ of the population did that!

68 For every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores,
$68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures.
If you spend it in a national chain, only $43 stays here.
Spend it online and nothing comes home.

1 The number of people it takes to start the trend… YOU.

Pick 3. Spend 50. Save your local economy.
