Buy Local

Similar programs have popped up across the country, but all have the same goal: reminding people of the importance of patronizing their local businesses.  Forest County has some 200 businesses offering a wide variety of goods and services.  While they may not be able to satisfy every need of our residents, they can certainly fill most of them.  FCBA’s Buy Local program  was launched in June of 2012 and includes banners, window clings, posters and bag stuffers for participating businesses, monthly Buy Local banner ads and “Member Spotlight” articles in the Forest Press.
