The SC Small Business Chamber has launched a new initiative to promote the products and services from SC small businesses. One feature of “Buy SC” is an online directory that can be used to find South Carolina owned, local small businesses. “Buy SC” was launched in Columbia, and the majority of businesses listed currently are from that region. Registration is free…let’s show them what the Upstate has to offer!
Multiple studies have shown that every dollar we spend at local independent businesses, on average, generates at least THREE TIMES MORE direct local economic benefit than those dollars spent at an absentee-owned chain.
Since over 60 percent of new jobs come from small businesses, “BuySC” is about growing our local and state economies by supporting our small businesses and entrepreneurs.
Use this online directory to find South Carolina-owned, local businesses in your area. Many are offering discounts when you mention that you found them on “BuySC” or bring in a copy of their ad.
Spread the word about “BuySC” through the organizations to which you belong, and ask your favorite local businesses if they’ve heard of “BuySC” yet.
Fly the “BuySC” badge on your facebook page or website, and be part of the solution here in South Carolina!
Request a FREE a BuySC Decal by emailing Stephanie@scsbc.org and display it proudly on your storefront or car window.
