For every local purchase….. there’s a local purpose!
The I GET IT! in Faribault initiative is designed to promote shopping on a retail level, but it goes even further by encouraging residents and businesses to make a conscious decision to purchase services locally as well.
Local businesses add to the character that is Faribault, contributing more than just goods and services. They offer personalized attention, add diversity to our shopping options, and bring life to historic buildings. And they pay their employees—and local taxes—with the income they receive. Each time you choose to spend your dollars at a local business, you are voting for the continued strength and vitality of our community. Local business owners invest in community. Local businesses are owned by people who live in this community, worship and send their children to schools here, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in the community’s future.
Get involved with the shop local campaign that reaches consumer directly and connects your business with people who GET IT!
Find us on FACEBOOK and post photos and testimonials of your local favorite places to GET IT!
