Shop Downtown Montezuma: Your One-Stop Source for the
Holiday Season!

The Montezuma Downtown Development Authority is asking you to help revitalize our local economy. You can save Montezuma's economy three stores at a time. How? Simply think about which three stores you would most miss if they disappeared from downtown Montezuma and return there to shop.

Today's shoppers have become so rooted in thinking about the essentials that sometimes they forget to think about the little shop whose owner remembers their name or the restaurant where the waitress knows if you want sweat tea, lemonade, or water.

If even half the employed population spent a mere $50 per month in locally owned retail stores, those purchases would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue--which can be a huge impact for a relatively small investment.

Why is that? Did you know that sixty-eight of every $100 spent in locally owned stores stays in the community's economy? By contrast, only $43 per one hundred remains local when spent in national chains and little or no revenue results from online purchases.

Find out more about how you can keep your hard earned dollars from leaching into the economies of our neighboring counties by checking out the 350 project website. And remember, shopping at home three times a month can be the difference between a local merchant's success or closure.
