GJACC Shop Local ProgramGrand Junction Area Chamber SHOP Local Program

Thank you for being part of the Grand Valley’s vibrant business community. As part of the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce efforts to stimulate the local economy we launched a “shop local” campaign.

The number one priority of this campaign is to change local consumer attitudes about how shopping locally can stimulate economic activity, assist in entrepreneurship development, create jobs, generate tax dollars for streets, police and fire protection and generate dollars
for nonprofits from Little League to United Way. We will be issuing blue wrist bands to
remind shoppers to think before they buy on how they can leverage their dollars and help
the community.

WHAT CONSUMERS CAN DO

Shopping local puts your hard-earned dollars to work right here in your community.

Keep Recycling Your Dollar
By choosing to re-circulate your dollars in the Grand Valley, you play an important role in keeping our regional economy strong, creating jobs and providing vital tax revenue that supports things like road repair, police and fire protection.

Keep Our Community Strong
When local businesses flourish, they can continue their support of important community projects and charitable organizations.

Keep Our Economy Strong
For every one dollar spent locally you can have a positive impact of $3.00.  If we all do that it will have a measureable effect on helping our local economy recover from the recent recession.

Keep Your Neighbors Working
The Grand Valley is a robust region, with thousands of companies open for business and eager to assist you—large and small, franchises and locally-owned, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for.

Shop Local is a mindset. You do have a choice and you can make a difference. 

WHAT MERCHANTS CAN DO

We need your help spreading the word about our Shop Local campaign - a campaign for the entire Western Slope, aimed at re-circulating dollars in our local economy.

Keep Your Neighbors Working
We want to secure the employment of our friends, neighbors and family members.

Keep Our Community Strong
Buying local strengthens area businesses, service providers and employees.
