The 3/50 Project

Did you know that when you shop in a locally owned independent store 68% of the money you spend returns to the community? Did you know that when you shop in a national chain store only 43% of that returns locally? And even more shocking-when you shop online none of that money returns to the community. This information is provided by the 3/50 project. The 3/50 project is a nation wide movement to save the locally owned, independent businesses in every community. Since its beginnings in March of 2009, the 3/50 project has spread throughout the country through word of mouth. Discover Sycamore and many local businesses have joined with the founder, Cinda Baxter, to promote the 3/50 Project. For more information on the 3/50 project visit their website or
