What is #ShiftYourShopping

A tradition is being built, a tradition that strengthens local economies, expands employment, nurtures a sense of community, and provides a more relaxed, fun, and rewarding shopping experience.

As customers, we collectively spend a large portion of our annual shopping budget between Nov. 1 and Dec. 31. Thank you for joining us in shifting those dollars to locally owned, independent businesses. Based on studies of similar efforts, we’ve likely generated 2-3 times as much economic activity in our community than if we had spent our money at a national chain. Across North America, that could mean billions of dollars of economic impact.

This page is dedicated to providing our visitors insight into what the world is saying about #ShiftYourShopping.
