The holiday season is an excellent time to help support your communities by choosing to go local in all you do. Local shops make a great choice for purchasing holiday gifts for your loved ones. Choose a local restaurant for your dinner plans. Find your holiday centerpiece at a local florist shop. Donating to a local charity is a great way to help our local neighborhoods. And, of course, don’t forget to bank local too!
When you shop locally, the money you spend stays local. In fact, when you support locally owned and operated businesses, every dollar spent is returned threefold to your local economy—putting your hard-earned money to work in the community you call home.
Not only does choosing local reinvest dollars back into the community. When you shop local, you also support local jobs, local decision making and entrepreneurship.
And we know that you have choices, often just a click away. So I cannot express enough my appreciation for your decision to support local by banking with Tioga State Bank and choosing us as your community partner. We look forward to continuing our relationship with you.
We hope that you will continue to shop locally during the holiday season and don’t forget to support Small Business Saturday on November 24th.
