Proud Member of the Buy Local Coalition & Lancaster Chamber’s Think Local program

As a proud partner in the South Central PA’s Buy Local Coalition and a member of the Lancaster Chamber’s Think Local program, we are committed to educating the public about the benefits of supporting and patronizing local businesses, and are dedicated to using local vendors whenever possible.

Local businesses are owned by people who live in this community, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in the community’s future, with a greater sense of corporate social responsibility.
In addition, local businesses are the largest employers in our community. Nearly 90% of all Americans are employed by local businesses.
