For every $100 spent in locally-owned independent stores:
$68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures...
If you spend that at a national chain, only $43 stays here...
Spend it online and nothing comes home!
A Partnership of Neighbors
The two Business Improvement Districts are working together to promote the diverse collection of locally-owned and operated businesses that make Fort Greene/Clinton Hill so special.
“This event will provide an opportunity for residents across both neighborhoods to easily get to the many locally-owned businesses up and down Myrtle and Fulton, to do some early holiday shopping,”
- Michael Blaise Backer
Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn
“It only makes sense that we work together, since Fort Greene/Clinton Hill is like one small town”
- Phillip Kellogg
Fulton Area Business (FAB)
