Shop SWO

Love Where You Live!

Here are some of the reasons we should Shop Local.

  • When you shop local, you ensure that your sales tax dollars are reinvested where they belong — in your community.

  • Dollars you spend locally support vital public services in the city of Stillwater and Payne County — including public safety, parks, streets and other aspects of Stillwater’s quality of life.

  • Your local purchases support local jobs.

  • You strengthen the local economy. Local businesses tend to buy and sell with other local businesses.

  • Also, local ownership of businesses means residents with roots in the community are involved in key development decisions that shape our lives and the local environment.

  • Consumer surveys repeatedly show independent businesses are rated high in overall customer satisfaction.

  • Local businesses pick the items and products they sell based on what they know you like and want — in other words, they have a vested interest in serving you.

  • Local business owners often sell local products, which helps preserve the community’s distinction.
