The Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the new ShopLawCo Community Gift Card, a community-based digital gift card that makes it fun and easy to keep spending local. Purchase a ShopLawCo E-Card here to use at any of the participating shops in the neighborhood. With this card, you can write a personal message and send it to family, friends and colleagues via email, text, or printable copy. Recipients can choose to spend it at one of 28 (and growing) participating merchants in Lawrence County —or mix it up and spend flexibly at multiple locations. All-digital and always available on your phone, the ShopLawCo E-Card is great for birthdays, holidays, teacher appreciation, coach gifts, or just to show your appreciation to a friend. Now you can give back to the community while you celebrate the upcoming holiday season!
Why Supporting Local Businesses is so Important
Participating in this program means supporting the heart of what makes our community unique. The purchase of a ShopLawCo eGift Card creates a pool of cash that local businesses in Lawrence County can rely on. Studies have shown that local independent retailers recirculate 47% of their revenue back into the community, while only 14% of national chains’ revenue stays in the community. More dramatically, restaurants recirculate 73% of their revenue back into the community, versus only 30% for national chains.
By supporting local businesses, more money continues circulating through the local community—this is achieved through a combination of profits paid to local business owners, wages paid to local workers, goods and services procured locally for internal use or resale, and charitable giving within the community. If you’re looking for a way to do some good or want to know how you can help the community you love, send a ShopLawCo E-Card today!
