Support our local economy Bristol — Believe in Bristol to help promote the 3/50 Project!

Marketing students at Virginia Intermont College have partnered with Believe in Bristol and The Tombras Group, a TriCities advertising firm, on a project to benefit the merchants and local economy of Bristol.

The promotion we are undertaking is the 3/50 Project, a national movement encouraging consumers to support their local economy by shopping at independently owned businesses. The 3/50 Project challenges consumers to pick three locally owned independent businesses and spend $50 a month total at the three stores. “Pick 3. Spend 50. Save our local economy.” For every $100 spent in independently owned stores, approximately $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays here. Spend it online, and nothing comes home.

The 3/50 Project has been beneficial for small communities nationwide, and we know it will have a positive impact within Bristol as well.
