July has arrived! And Brattleboro has entered into Independent Retailer Month along with other downtowns across the country to encourage people to shop local. Our campaign, Buy Local Bratt, aims to boost Brattleboro’s downtown economy this summer. The statistics are out, the organization Civic Economics has found:
“For every $100 spent locally, at least $68 of that stays in the local economy. That means each dollar you spent at an independent business returns three times more money to your local economy than a dollar spent at a national chain.”
When you shop in downtown Brattleboro, your money goes back to donation drives for your schools, your community groups, and your neighbors. Support your home by supporting Brattleboro’s Independent Businesses!
- Download the BINGO game card or pick one up at participating local businesses in downtown.
- Complete 5 consecutive squares (horizontal/vertical/diagonal)
- Share your completed BINGO card on social media and tag @downtownbrattleboro and the businesses you supported.
- or email your completed card to firstname.lastname@example.org
All BINGO cards completed during Independents Month will be entered to win a curated #buylocalbratt gift basket
BINGO cards available at Brattleboro Area Chamber of Commerce, Shoe Tree, Experienced Goods, Altiplano, B’s Nest, Everyone’s Books.
