There will be three prize packages awarded: the first place winner will receive a prize package valued at $1,277; the second place prize package is valued at $547; and the third prize package is valued at $149—a total of more than $2,000 in goods and services from local OBX businesses like Village Realty, E.L. Miller, III & Sons, Cotton Gin and Sanctuary Vineyards, Wild Horse Adventure Tours and other restaurants and so much more!
As a way to thank everyone for their participation, the Buy Local Contest drawing is being held at the Cotton Gin in Jarvisburg during Acoustic Sunset. While Acoustic Sunset runs from 5:30 to 9pm, the drawing will be held at 6:30pm. Participants are encouraged to come and enjoy free live music and tasting series at this fun weekly event. And if it rains, the event will move into the winery.
For three months, residents shopped at locally-owned retailers and did business with other locally-owned companies in an effort to keep dollars moving in Currituck County. Whether it was frequenting Corolla shopping centers, looking towards area service providers like accountants, heating and cooling contractors, and other professional and service companies, they held onto receipts to send in to us or drop off at any of the participating locations. Some have even taken the time to take pictures of themselves in front of local businesses and email them to us. One thing is for sure…we are amazed at the level of participation and cannot wait for the next one.
Buying local is something that every resident in Currituck County should strive to do. Not only does it keep dollars in the community in the form of tax dollars, it helps local businesses grow which then boosts job growth. All of this helps enhance schools, improve roads, provide better local services like police, fire and rescue, and so much more. Local job growthalso allows area residents to work closer to home which also keeps money in the community. Ultimately, buying local boosts the local economy.
Currituck County relies on the charm of locally-owned businesses to capture the flavor of the Outer Banks for the vacationers who spend time and money here. Because of this, it is important for residents to support the local economy as well to keep it moving in an upward direction. Buying local is as easy as heading out to weekly farmers’ markets, shopping at Corolla shopping centers, and dining at locally-owned restaurants and cafes. It just takes a little time to develop a “local” mindset. When we buy local, Currituck County wins and, in the end, we, as a community, win.
As for the success of our Buy Local contests, we are so grateful for those who live and work in Currituck County. Not only does it speak volumes as to how much our local businesses support the local community but it also speaks volumes as to how much our community supports the local economy and growth of Currituck County.
Buy Local Currituck is an initiative designed to improve the local economy by encouraging consumers to buy from local retailers and use services from locally owned companies. We cannot say it enough -- keeping money moving locally throughout Currituck County in the form of income, taxes and local job growth strengthens the local economy.
