A new program designed to promote the local Plant City economy has recently launched. We think this could be another good step in the right direction for infusing some ‘life’ into the local economy. The reality is that there are a lot of vibrant businesses here in Plant City that are having real success. Getting those ‘stories’ heard and doing some self-promotion is certainly needed.
From the Plant City Observer…
“The Greater Plant City Chamber of Commerce and the Plant City Times & Observer have partnered to launch a new campaign to boost the local economy and keep consumers’ dollars focused on independent businesses.
The physical elements of the new Buy Local Program include promotional materials to remind shoppers that every dollar spent locally makes an impact. Any Plant City business (not only those within the Chamber of Commerce) can obtain and display these materials: window decals, posters and a digital logo. The logo can be used on websites or in email signatures, as well as in businesses.
Although many towns and cities across the country have adopted Buy Local campaigns, Plant City’s campaign logo features a secondary slogan: “Quality Grows Here,” a nod to the area’s rich agricultural history.”
