A new campaign launched today by Camden County’s Economic Development and Business Services team will partner municipalities with more than 170 local businesses to promote the benefits of shopping locally and spur job growth.
“Small businesses are (the) backbone of our economy. The more success they have, the better off the county will be,” said Louis Cappelli Jr., Camden County freeholder director. “We all benefit when people shop locally.”
According to Cappelli, if every household in Camden County transitioned $10 of their monthly retail spending from companies outside of the county to businesses within it, the annual economic benefit to the county would be approximately $35 million.
