What does it mean to buy local? Can we really affect our local economy by buying local? Do local businesses really make a difference to the quality of life in our community? This blog will strive to answer these questions and to promote the locally owned businesses in the Wausau area.
Think Local, Live Local, Rely Local
Buying local is more than just patronizing our local and independently owned businesses. A true localteer needs to Think Local and Live Local. By thinking local, your choices can make dramatic changes on our community and economy.
