Every week, we'll shine the SPOTLIGHT on a local business in the "Shop Burlington County First" program, the "buy local" initiative created by Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders and its regional partners, the Burlington County Bridge Commission and the Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce. 


Freeholder-Director Kate Gibbs invites you to "Shop Burlington County First":
"Our buy-local program supports Burlington County's local businesses and promotes the unique goods and services they offer. Through this program, we are keeping Burlington County's local economy strong and growing." 

This Week's Spotlight on:

This Week’s SPOTLIGHT On:
The Torre Studios

100 W. Broad St.


Representing Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce 

What is special to you? Who do you love? What do you love about your life? How do you celebrate your life?  One way we celebrate the people, things and events in our lives is by taking photographs  Why do we do this? The answer is simple .. Memories. 

We don’t want to forget the moments that mean so much to us.  We want to be transported back to that time when we were young, graduated from school, fell in love, got married, started a family, received a promotion. Photography is the way we stop moments in time and preserve them.  It validates our lives.

The “artists” at The Torre Studios love what they do, every minute of it. They can’t think of a better way to share the gift of photography than to create timeless artwork and preserve family legacies for clients to celebrate their love of family, friends, pets, and life.

The Torre Studios was founded by Andrew J. Torre, M. Photog., Cr., CPP in 1952, and later joined by his wife Letitia, Cr. Photog. CPP. The passion and love for photography is carried on today by their daughter, Andrea J. Torre Brown, Cr. Photog., CPP.

The Torre Studios is a full-service professional photography studio located in the Historic District of Burlington. Their services include photography of families, children, pets and weddings. They now have a Business Essentials Program for businesses in the Delaware Valley. Their classic and new contemporary style portraiture is available for in-studio and on location sessions.

Why Buy Local?

If each household in Burlington County spent just $10 more each month at Burlco businesses, the resulting annual impact to the local economy would be about $19.9 MILLION DOLLARS!

For every $100 spent locally in independently owned stores, shops and restaurants, $44 to $83 is re-circulated in the local economy.  When $100 is spent in national chains, only $14 to $43 stays in the local economy.

How we all benefit by shopping Burlington County:

  • Keep Burlington County's economy strong and growing.
  • Embrace local businesses, which create 80% of new jobs and often provide better wages and benefits
  • Save time and money and protect the environment. Shopping locally saves travel time and gas money
  • Get great products and services at competitive prices at any of Burlington County's 8,000 one-of-a-kind, independent businesses 
  • Create a sense of community. Community groups get 350% more support from local business owners than non-locally owned businesses.
