We’re gearing up to OCCUPY BLACK FRIDAY. Did you know that, of every dollar you spend in a big chain store, only 43¢ goes into the local economy? Spend that same dollar at a locally-owned business, and 68¢ is reinvested locally. [Source]
Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is the biggest shopping day of the holiday season. We’re inviting EVERYONE to pledge to shop locally whenever possible.
Also, Bank Transfer Day may be over, but this is still a great time to open an account with a locally-owned bank or credit union. Let’s keep our money in our community, where it belongs!
BLACK FRIDAY ACTIONS
This Saturday, join us for our first Black Friday march. We will meet at 240 W Moana at 10:00am, and march down to Virginia & McCarran. There we will post on the four corners. The THEME is Buy Local, Bank Local this Holiday Season. Bring signs that advertise the theme (and some shameless self-advertising as well).
We’ll march every Saturday, and on Black Friday too. For more information, see this blog post or check the calendar at the right of this page.
