BUY LOCAL - MAKE COMMUNITY MATTER!
Each dollar we spend is a vote for the future direction of our communities. Spending at locally owned businesses keeps our dollars local to better serve community’s needs.
Black Dollar Days Task Force has launched a Buy Local Coalition, which has jointly organized a “Buy Local” week the first week of February, the Buy Local Rally, and the Buy Local Business Reception in Seattle, WA.
Buy from stores that are independent, locally owned, and give back to your community. Get to know the owners and other folks who work there.
When in other neighborhoods, buy from community-based stores in those neighborhoods. Try products and meet people from cultures other than your own.
Seek out products that originate in our area. Help create a regional economy.
Buy from Northwest companies whenever possible. Insist that stores carry such products.

“Plenty of good food”
This year we will be showcasing all small business’s products and services and giving each participate a 2-minute blurb about their business. Instead of having a guest speaker, our focus is to learn about the different products and services of small businesses we can support. Each vendor will get a 5% discount advertisement in the 22nd edition of the directory.
Get ready for the 2012 edition of the African American Business Directory.
Black Dollar Days Task Force has recently partnered with Seattle Publishing Inc., our long time publisher, to handle the advertising sale for the directory. They will be contacting businesses on our behalf to make the 21st edition a success.
