Shopping locally as of late has developed the stigma of being a bit elitist. While some hip folks like to turn it into a smugness-spreading contest, buying from local vendors is truly beneficial to Cincinnati. Every dollar spent at a locally-owned business creates nearly three times the economic activity of a dollar spent at a typical superstore.
BuyCincy is an organization that promotes the city’s best local vendors, and on Saturday they will be holding this year’s Cincinnati Unchained. Stores across the city will be offering deals, gifts and charitable donations for this annual event. This year’s participants include Park Vine, Atomic Number 10, Chicken Lays an Egg, and The Spotted Goose.
