ABOUT SHOP LOCAL FIRST

Strength comes in numbers. Whether you are a business owner, part of a local community group or a citizen who shares a vision for a strong, Carlinville business climate, we need your help. Imagine our collective voice if we all work together! This is why Shop Local First was created.


The Shop Local First campaign unites local businesses, like-minded citizens, and community groups of every kind around a common agenda. By raising awareness about the value local businesses offer and their importance in the community, the Shop Local First commitment helps shift consumers spending to those businesses, especially to Shop Local First members.
