Top 5 Reasons to TLC Think Lenoir County!

“The Buck Stays Here” when you shop & purchase locally:

1. SALES TAX DOLLARS STAY HERE AND FUND OUR OWN COMMUNITIES

  • You will help generate over $12.2 million in sales tax dollars that will stay right here in Lenoir County and help our own local economy.
  • Your purchases invest in neighborhood improvement and community development projects.
  • You help enhance the quality of life – taxable purchases contribute to the general fund for our city, towns and county providing services like police, fire, senior services, libraries, street maintenance, street lights, parks, schools and more. When you spend money elsewhere, you help fund their community.

2. LOCAL JOBS, BUSINESS EXPANSION EQUALS NEW BUSINESS GROWTH

  • You assist local businesses to thrive, expand and stay in business.
  • You simultaneously create and retain jobs here in our own communities when you shop and purchase services locally.
  • You create active business communities which will lure new businesses and promote growth.

3. SHOW LOYALTY TO COMMUNITY MINDED BUSINESSES HERE AT HOME

  • Your local business owners and managers support our neighborhoods and have a vested interest in the future of this community.
  • You will be doing business with companies that support: local jobs, our schools, and much more.
  • You build relationships with merchants who care and are committed to your satisfaction.
  • You can show loyalty to the businesses and agencies that make our community great.

4. SAVE TIME & ENERGY

  • You can save time- save commute time to larger neighboring communities that continue to be in busy gridlock.
  • You save energy – gas is expensive. A weekly trip to a neighboring city adds up to an additional $10–20 per month in gas costs.
  • You can stay in the neighborhood; take your time to explore the wide variety of goods and services right in your own backyard. And it’s convenient too!

5. THE BUCK STAYS HERE – GROWING LENOIR COUNTY AND ITS COMMUNITIES

  • Simply put: YOU help to build a stronger infrastructure for your own home town.
