Last year, consumers spent an estimated $5.5 billion at locally-owned stores and restaurants on Small Business Saturday. Lets keep this statistic going and try to make it even higher in 2014! Shopping local boosts the cities economy and allows our small businesses to grow, because with every $1 spent about $.45 gets reinvested locally. Concept Marketing and The Hobart Chamber have teamed up to bring you Shop Local - Hobart Holiday 2014 Edition. This publication will showcase local businesses within Hobart and give them the opportunity to advertise, generate a coupon or do both. The 16 page book will go to all The Hobart Chamber members, be available at The Chamber of Commerce and other local businesses.
