The Chamber’s Buy Local. Shop Chamber. campaign goal is to raise community awareness about the importance and benefits of buying goods and services from merchants located in the region. Connecticut currently ranks first in per capita disposable income, meaning that the Connecticut consumer has the capacity to spend more than the average U.S. shopper. Buy Local. Shop Chamber. is aimed at keeping those dollars in eastern Connecticut, a daunting task in today’s internet age. As internet purchasing continues to increase, there is a risk of a corresponding decrease in the viability of business community and beyond.
