February’s Local Business Saturday

February’s Local Business Saturday Specials

In an effort to help revitalize our local economy, Tallahassee Mayor John Marks along with the City of Tallahassee, Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce, Capital City Chamber of Commerce and local businesses have launched a Local Business Saturday program.

The second Saturday of each the month in 2011 will be designated as a Local Business Saturday. This collaborative effort will include a targeted marketing campaign encouraging consumers to shop at locally-owned and locally-operated businesses for cost-saving deals.

While the community will realize the positive economic effects of this program, individuals will benefit by saving money when they cash in on the deals and incentives being offered.

Many businesses have signed up to participate and some have already posted discounts on the Local Business Saturday’s  Facebook page. Locally owned business, Moore Consulting Group developed a branding model and logo for the initiative. A website hosted by a local business is in the works and will make it even easier for shoppers to find out about second Saturday savings being offered by local businesses.
