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.
Bruce Garganio invites
you to "Shop Burlington County First": "Join in our efforts to energize the economy in Burlington County, keep it growing, and create new jobs."
Next Monday, America celebrates its 240th “birthday.’’ July 4th marks the signing of the Declaration of Independence when our nation’s founders boldly challenged England’s rule over the 13 colonies.
After 10 years of tension, military engagement began in 1775 and did not end until Great Britain surrendered in 1783 and recognized the United States of America, a nation that still stands to represent a republic that enjoys the greatest freedoms in the world.
Below are listed celebrations around Burlington County this coming weekend where you can express your patriotism and appreciation for freedom.
And while visiting our downtowns, exercise your right to free enterprise and shop local! Here’s a few special deals to make you proud.
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.
