Take The Pledge To Shop Local For The Holidays!

Posted: November 19, 2013

Shopping at independent retailers helps strengthen our local economy, expands employment, fosters community, and provides a more relaxed, fun, and rewarding shopping experience – which is why this holiday season, we’re pledging to shop local and asking others to take the Local First Milwaukee Shop Local Pledge!

Many of us spend a large portion of our annual shopping budget between November 1 and December 31 in preparation for the holidays. But did you know that shopping at local businesses can generate 2-3 times as much economic activity in our city than if we had spent that money at a national chain? That means more jobs, better quality, and a vibrant and sustainable community!

localfirstmkeJoin us this season in supporting local – take the Shift Your Shopping pledge through Local First Milwaukee

By shifting just an additional 10% of our year-around shopping and dining to local businesses, we could create $311 million in new economic activity in our local economy every year.

Colectivo is proud to be a founding member of Local First Milwaukee and an independently owned local business since 1993.

Check out these fantastic opportunities to support local businesses and artisans this holiday season:
