Live Here Spend Here Campaign
Shop, eat and support the businesses where you live.
That’s the message behind a new “Live Here, Spend Here” campaign that Falls Township launched recently.
In an effort to promote existing township businesses and encourage residents to spend more – or all – of their hard-earned money within township borders, the Falls Township Board of Supervisors announced the rollout of its “Live Here, Spend Here” initiative. Spending in one’s hometown not only supports the local business community, but creates jobs, strengthens the local economy and helps to lessen the need for municipal taxes.
A joint undertaking between the Falls Township Board of Supervisors and the Community and Economic Development Committee, the campaign’s objective is to promote a township business in a roughly five-minute video, which would be housed on the township’s Website, aired on the cable access channel and promoted on the township’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
The new effort, which will get underway this Spring, was the brainchild of Supervisors Vice Chairman Jeffry Dence, who said he got the idea for the program while working in Burlington County, N.J. That community has a similar business promotion program already in place and promotes it with a logo and stickers in local merchants’ windows.
Kicking off the initiative in Falls is a no-brainer for residents and the business community as a whole.
“You really don’t have to go far,” Dence said. “You really don’t have to go out of the township to spend money on things you need.”
With the upcoming addition of sidewalks and crosswalks on New Falls Road, residents will be able to more easily walk or bike to local businesses.
James Hess, of the Falls Township Community and Economic Development Committee, said that one of the best ways to promote business development is to create greater awareness of the products and services that local businesses have to offer.
The Falls Supervisors are open to promoting and supporting all Falls businesses. The plan is for a local business to be nominated or chosen at random. A new business will be featured each month. For April, Thornridge Hardware Supply Inc. will be featured.
If you know of a Falls business that you would like to see spotlighted email Falls Township Manager Peter Gray at email@example.com.
