The 12th annual Buy Local Season is Lowcountry Local First's grassroots movement to build awareness for the positive community benefits of supporting local, independent businesses—particularly during the holiday season. 

We encourage citizens and visitors to look for the hundreds of Certified Local decals on storefronts around the community, and to utilize our Business Directory as an online destination to browse dozens of local businesses for unique gifts and experiences this season.
