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:

Independence Day

Representing all participating businesses in Shop Burlington County First  

Next Wednesday will mark 242 years since America declared its independence from England near the beginning of an eight-year Revolutionary War.

This holiday marks the signing of the Declaration of Independence and should remind us that our freedom as a nation, and individuals, has come with a great price.

We also should be reminded, and grateful, that Burlington County was in the center of the Revolution and remains rich in history. Mount Holly, Burlington City, Bordentown and even Batsto maintain sites that were prevalent in the battle for independence. Check it out.

While honoring and recognizing the sacrifice and determination of our forefathers in their fight for our independence, remember the independently owned local merchants who are dedicated to providing quality products and service at reasonable prices as well as support for community.

Enjoy your holiday. We have listed a few municipal celebrations occurring around Burlington County to mark this holiday.

And while visiting our downtowns, stay loyal to your hometown local businesses! They have created some special offers just for you and this holiday.

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.
