Chazy Giftshop Owner Researches Movement to Support Local Businesses

Carol Tetreault, owner of The Station Cafe and Gifts, is researching the 3/50 project, a nationwide movement to encourage people to choose three independent, local businesses and spend $50 a month in each. The Web site, http://www.350project.net/, states that is half the employed population did that it would generate $42.6 billion in revenue. It also states that for every $100 spend in local independent stores, $68 comes back to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures. If that same money is spent at national chains, $43 comes back to the community, while none returns if the money is spent online. Press Republican, Sunday, July 26, 2009, Business, p.
