Buy Local in Oswego

The ONE group in collaboration with the Oswego Fulton Chamber of Commerce would like to promote and support the 3/50 program and any buy local efforts. Since the Chamber’s Small Business Breakfast highlighted the 3/50 project by bringing its creator, Cinda Baxter, to Oswego to speak there has been much discussion about how to keep the momentum going and what programs/marketing would work best. One of the items mentioned was a buy local card. This could be an informal business card style that you show the merchant when you buy a product, a key tag similar to what you get with a Price Chopper Advantage card, or you can ascribe to programs for gift cards that are used among independent local retailers. There are multiple options and we should consider the option most feasible for our market. I am including a link to an article about gift card options for anyone interested in learning more. br /br /http://www.linkedin.com/news?viewArticle=articleID=135473371gid=1855102articleURL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Eakersarchitecturalrendering%2Ecom%2Fblog%2F2010%2F6%2F9%2Fcommunity-gift-card-overview%2Ehtmlurlhash=jB80trk=news_discussbr /br /This is a linkedin discussion on Buy Local/Independent Groups and Advocates page. br /br /Don’t forget to pick the three businesses you want to always have in Oswego and support them by spending $50 among the three businesses each month! br /br /Thank you!div class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2012837801986335178-7139334846427132075?l=oneoswego.blogspot.com’ alt=” //div
