Shop Local and Shift Your Shopping

Shift Your Shopping

This season, we’re asking you to join an annual tradition that strengthens local economies, creates jobs, nurtures a sense of community and ensures that this community stays a unique and fun place to live. Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s simple, really.

Shift your shopping to local and independent stores!

If you shift your dollars to locally owned, independent businesses (so MANY great local independent businesses in Jamaica Plain), it will generate 2-3 times as much economic activity in the J.P. community than if you spend your money at a national chain or shopping online.

At City Feed and Supply, not only are you shopping at a local, independent business owned by folks who live & work & LOVE J.P., but you are also buying from over 200 local suppliers & helping to support over 40 local & regional farms in New England. That is a lot of BANG for your buck!

The Sustainable Business Network of Boston has a campaign that outlines how to make the shift. Visit 10% SHIFT to sign the pledge, find Shifters in JP, read reports and try the Local Calculator.

Find out what David Warner, co-owner of City Feed and Supply, has to say about running a local, independent business in Jamaica Plain.
