Shop Lexington! - Benefits of Local Shopping

We've said it many times: You can make a positive impact on our local economy when you shop in Lexington. Think of it as a way to reinvest in your community.

The casual encounters you enjoy at neighborhood–scale businesses and the public spaces around them build relationships and community cohesiveness.

Each dollar you spend at independent businesses returns 3 times more money to your local economy than one spent at a chain (almost 50 times more than buying from an online mega-retailer) — a benefit we all can bank on.

Finally, independent businesses help give your community its distinct personality, something we all take pride in.

During the Christmas season, do yourself and your community a favor - check out local businesses right here in Lexington FIRST!

And a reminder that Chamber Gift Certificates are an outstanding way to keep the Shop Local theme going, now and throughout the year. You can purchase the gift certificates at the Chamber office in any amount. They're redeemable at any Chamber member business...and we can't think of a more thoughtful gift that supports Lexington commerce.
