Resources to Help
You get it. Probably once a week, if not more often, you are asked to make a donation to a local project while balancing payroll and accounts receivable. We want to help you let shoppers know that  you appreciate them and how they impact your ability to stay in business.
 
 To do this, we have created free Miami County posters and flyers for you to use. They are available below in multiple sizes for your convenience.

Maximize the Message
Here are some other free resources you can deploy to maximize the shop local message:
  • American Independent Business Alliance -
    One of the originals in the national shop local effort, this website offers free bag stuffers, web ads and radio spots. With a paid membership, even more resources are available to business owners.
  • Business Alliance for Local Living Economies -
    While this is a membership-based organization, there are several online resources offered for free.
  • KCSourceLink -
    This Kansas City resource has a small business locator map - which is a free listing for your business.
  • Shop Small -
    This initiative by American Express was recently created to encourage shoppers to think about the impact of their daily shopping.
  • Small Business Saturday -
    Another American Express initiative initially focused on retailers who accept their credit card but has gained national acceptance during the past few years. They encourage shoppers to dedicate the Saturday after November's Black Friday to making purchases in small, locally owned retailers. Businesses can register for online maps and promotions.
