Once a week-long celebration, now a month-long local extravaganza, Buy Local Month shares the economic impact buying local has with the public and serves as a showcase for the local, independent businesses that make the Lowcountry unique.
According to a recent study by the Institute for Local Self Reliance, in 2011 independent businesses in communities a Buy Local Campaign experienced an average sales increase of 7.2%! Independent businesses in communities without such a campaign only saw an average increase of 2.6%.
