Buy Idaho is celebrating Buy Idaho Day, Shift Your Spending – Buy Local. All Idahoans are invited to participate in the state wide celebration of Idaho businesses by shifting their spending and shop locally on May 9th, 2020.
As a local addition to National Small Business Week, Buy Idaho Day is every Idahoan’s opportunity to shift their spending to locally owned businesses on the 2nd Saturday of May. This annual event encourages the community to show support to the small businesses that make Idaho an amazing place to call home.
Throughout the state, seek out local businesses and shift your spending by:
“Buy Idaho Day is a call to action for every Idahoan to shift our spending, support our neighbors, and shop from small businesses across the state,” said Jennifer Mauk, Executive Director of Buy Idaho. “For over 30 years, Buy Idaho has been promoting the “shop local” message in support of all of Idaho’s unique and diverse locally owned businesses. Supporting small business is crucial to maintaining a strong local economy. Look for the Buy Idaho logo and Buy Idaho.”
As Idahoans, it is our obligation to invest in our local economy. For every dollar spent at a local business, 68% of that revenue stays in Idaho. By generating this tax revenue, we are directly reinvesting in our local communities creating new jobs, encouraging uniqueness and diversity in industry, supporting our neighbors, conserving energy and transportation resources, and building a uniqueness that will attract visitors and new businesses. If every Idahoan spent $100, Buy Idaho day would generate over 9 million dollars in tax revenue to continue to building our state.
