“BUY LOCAL – ALEXANDER COUNTY”
The Alexander County Economic Development Corporation, with support from the Citizens for the Future of Alexander County (CFAC), has begun a “Buy Local – Alexander County” campaign to boost sales and sales tax revenues here in Alexander County.
According to statistics, almost 12,000 cars leave Alexander County every day, whether it’s for work, play, or shopping… and their money is being spent in neighboring counties. Sometimes it just isn’t possible to buy everything in Alexander County, but when it is possible, it is imperative that Alexander County residents spend their hard-earned dollars locally.
Supporting local merchants helps them survive and hopefully thrive, and a portion of the sales tax money that is generated from each sale returns to Alexander County and the Alexander County School System.
The next time you’re planning a trip to the grocery store, the mall, or any other retailer, remember the importance of buying locally — “Buy Local – Alexander County.”
