Holiday Shopping? Think Fishers First

Posted to Fishers, Indiana on November 13, 2015 at 4:07 PM by Blog Admin

Have you started your Christmas shopping? Before you get too far along, consider the benefits of spending your shopping dollars within your own community. Fishers is a vibrant city, filled with diverse options for goods and services. This holiday season, as you’re shopping for a variety of different gifts, think Fishers first.

When you choose to support local businesses, you reinvest in your own community. Each dollar spent at a local business generates three times more wealth to the local economy than a chain retailer. Additionally, local businesses donate more than two times as much sales revenue per dollar to local non-profits, events and teams compared to chain retailers.

While big-box retailers deliver unbeatable deals on hot ticket items during the holiday season, local businesses offer unique products crafted by local entrepreneurs and artisans. It’s our local businesses that give our community its distinct personality.

Shop Fishers, Shop Local

This Thanksgiving, after families gather to feast on turkey, pie and all of the holiday favorites in between, many will turn their attention to the newspaper stuffed with Black Friday ads from retailers promising “door busters” and unbelievable deals. Many will wake early Friday morning – and some will begin even earlier on Thursday evening — to fight the crowds and stand in long lines to spend the day shopping at some of the nation’s largest retailers.

But, before you plan your Black Friday strategy, why not discover all that Fishers has to offer and instead shop local this holiday season?

#ShopFishers is a great time to discover new and “new to you” local businesses, but we encourage you to shop local as often as you can. On Dec. 4, a few businesses in the Nickel Plate District are hosting a progressive shopping event from 4-8 p.m. and each business will offer an appetizer, main course or dessert; it’s a perfect time to continue your holiday shopping.
