"Harford Has It: Buy In" is a shop local initiative that encourages Harford County residents to focus their spending within the community. The Office of Economic Development commissioned the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore to do a study on the economic impacts of buying local in Harford County. Based on the findings, it was clear that buying local—as opposed to outside the County—could have significant impact on the economic vibrancy of the community in both job creation and tax revenue. This partnership, initiated by the Harford County Office of Economic Development and the Harford County Chamber of Commerce, is extended to county and municipal chambers, as well as business associations to help spread the word on how focusing your consumer spending habits locally in Harford County is a win-win for consumers, businesses, and residents. Download our logo bundle below, check out the Economic Impact Study, follow the campaign on social media, and more! Interested in becoming a collaborative partner?
