comment

By pledging to spend 10% of your shopping dollars this holiday season at locally-owned stores, you have a potential $23 million dollar impact on our community, an estimated $7.1 million dollars more than if it was spent at a non-local big box retailer.

Click here to make your pledge, go to "sign the pledge" at the top of the page, you will be registered to win a prize package from independent locally owned merchants and restaurants, plus tickets to the 2010 Charleston Comedy Festival - January 20-23rd. Deadline for entry is December 6th and the winner will be notified the week of December 7th.

The 10% Shift is a Lowcountry-wide grassroots movement of citizens, businesses, government agencies, and nonprofits working to shift 10% or more of our annual budget from non-local businesses to locally owned and independent businesses.
