Shop Local

Economy • Jobs • Community
The Brownwood Area Chamber of Commerce wants to remind area residents how important shopping at local retailers can be by launching a shop local campaign. The campaign is designed to raise awareness of the importance in keeping local dollars local and how it affects public services, local business, jobs and community activities.

Each time you make a local purchase, you support local jobs. Sales tax that is generated by local purchases goes to fund important city departments such as fire, police, parks, library, and senior services. Businesses also support and sponsor local events and activities that make Brown County a great place to live.
