Why Shop San Anselmo

August 31, 2010

MANY  have adopted the 3/50 project

What three independently-owned businesses would you miss if they disappeared? Stop in. Say Hello. Pick up something that brings a smile. Your purchases are what keep 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 positive impact if 3/4 the employed 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 that 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
