What We Do?

Founded in 2013, Living Local focuses on providing the resources that local businesses need to thrive and, in turn, contribute to our local communities.

Emphasizing networking, Living Local looks to engage businesses in the community through special events, training seminars and social media. As a group, we hope to encourage our communities to support our independent, locally owned businesses.

Our Mission: "Eat, Shop, Live." reinforces our local pride and the economic commitment we share in our communities. Local businesses are the tapestry of our lives. We, with our customers, need to keep our local businesses vital.


For Every $100 spent...

at independently owned stores, restaurants and services, $69 returns to the community through taxes, payroll & other expenditures.

If you spend it at a national chain, only $43 stays local.

Spend it on-line and Nothing comes home.
