I PLEDGE TO SHOP LOCAL THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!

By pledging to spend $100 of your holiday shopping dollars at locally-owned stores, you will have a potential $40 million impact on our community, an estimated $5.9 million more than if it was spent at a non-local big box retailer.

Here's how to MAKE THE PLEDGE:

E-mail I PLEDGE to shoplocal@indyweek.com and you will receive more information about this program.

You will also be recognized in our Shop Local Signature Ad on December 17th. Please indicate how you would like your name to appear in the ad.

(Estimate based on numbers from Civic Economics that .68 of every dollar spent at a locally owned business stays in the community, while only .43 stays when spent at a chain.)

Deadline to Pledge is Dec. 11
