Shopping local isn’t just a cool, new trend. When you shop local, you support small businesses and you’re helping to keep money in American communities.
For this reason, Scott’s Marketplace has created a national holiday that encourages people to support small businesses by shopping local more often.
SHIFT10 Day is a national holiday that brings shopping local to the forefront of American culture! People who take the pledge agree to shift 10% of their everyday spending toward small, local businesses instead of big-box chain stores.
And while we celebrate on 10/10 every year — SHIFT10 isn’t limited to one day — it’s a year-round initiative to remind people about the benefits of shopping local.
Want to get involved? Here are four ways you can be a part of SHIFT10.
1. Take the Pledge
