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. 


Mary Ann O'Brien 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."

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.
