Pick 3, Spend 50: How to Support the Local Economy this Holiday Shopping Season

Last spring, we encouraged you to “Pick 3, Spend $50”when the pandemic threatened to shutter the doors of many local small businesses. And we banded together as a community and joined the #BuyInJackson initiative to keep our local economy alive.

As we approach the holiday shopping season, we want to encourage you once again to keep your spending local and support our local economy by choosing to #BuyInJackson. 

There are so many unique shops, boutiques, local artisans, and vendors throughout Jackson County that are producing amazing products and services that are perfect for gifting this holiday season.

Where are your favorite places to shop locally for holiday gifts?
