The Chamber is encouraging all our citizens to Think/Shop/Buy Local for the upcoming holiday season. If every citizen of Chattooga County would pledge to shift $100 a month away from out of county purchases to local purchases we could have a $1,000,000 impact on the SPLOST for our county and school systems in both Chattooga and Trion school systems by the end of next year. Currently 2 cents on each sales tax dollar goes proportionately to our schools systems and 1 cent goes to our county.
The Chamber is also asking business members to add the think local logo to their website and their print advertising.
The Chamber would also like to encourage all our citizens to support all our local restaurants. Chamber Director David Tidmore said, " With the economy in a slow recovery here in Chattooga it is especially important that we keep our local dollars here in support of all our new and existing restaurants and businesses."
If you would like a print quality logo to use on your website, please contact the chamber at info@ChattoogaChamber.org.
