Buying Local Pumps up Cameron County Economy

Buying from locally owned stores is more important than ever.  Cameron County Chamber of Commerce & Artisan Center Executive Director Tina Johns Solak says, “if every person working in Cameron County would spend $50.00 a month at locally owned stores, more than $85,000 would be pumped into the local economy!”  That would mean in one year more than 1 million dollars would be spent in stores in the county.  After the store owner pays for the items bought….Cameron County would see more than $680,000.00 kept locally and paid to employees, donated to organizations and spent by the owner of the stores and employees at locally owned stores.
 The circle of the economy is so important for the smallest populated county in the state.  The chamber is adopting the 3/50 project.  It is an international project that promotes “saving the brick and mortars our nation is built on.”  This week www.the350project.net launched a smartphone application for the iPhone.  The free app is called LookLocal and includes the name, location and hours for locally owned businesses.  The android app is to be launched over the next few months. 

 Locally owned businesses are encouraged to register at www.the350project.net.  It is free and by registering it guarantees that the information about your business will appear in the smartphone app.

Between 7-5 and 8-8-2011, an unknown actor forcibly entered a camp owned by Nick Ginter of Yukon, PA, and located at 1548 Barr Hollow Road in Lumber Township, Cameron County. $950. worth of items were stolen from the camp. The damage to the camp was estimated at $50.00.
