Shop Where You Live

The Christian County Commission, in collaboration with the county government, cities, chambers of commerce, and the dynamic business community, is spearheading an initiative with dual goals:

1) raise awareness about supporting small businesses, and 2) encourage residents to shop locally. Local spending has undeniable economic impacts, creating jobs, funding public services, supporting nonprofits, and promoting sustainability.

This initiative, sparked by the Christian County Commission, aims to uplift establishments across various sectors. According to the US Census Bureau's 2021 report, Christian County is home to a thriving community of 1,999 employer establishments. As an integral part of the Shop Where You Live campaign in Christian County, this movement is specifically tailored to provide backing to businesses of all kinds, including retail outlets, service providers, and small-scale enterprises. Join us in amplifying the local business ecosystem and fostering economic resilience.
