The Office of Economic Vitality invites you to join the movement to #LoveYourLocal.

To encourage residents to support Tallahassee-Leon County businesses, the Love Your Local campaign was launched to shine a light on the thousands of local businesses within our community, ranging from auto-shops and hair salons. Small businesses help preserve our city’s unique culture, maintaining the charm and appeal we all have grown to appreciate. Our local businesses are not just a business, but an extension of our vibrant community.

According to the American Independent Business Alliance, for every dollar you spend at a local retail business, 67 cents stays in the local community. This means more of each dollar you spend at a local, independent business gets spent on local wages, local suppliers, and local livelihoods than when you shop at chain retailers and restaurants.

At the Office of Economic Vitality, we know that our local businesses thrive off of the support and the love of the community, which is what keeps it going. OEV invites all of Tallahassee-Leon County businesses, organizations, and residents to join the movement to Love Your Local!
