Thanks to everyone that participated in July!



In Greater Peoria, shopping local is not an event. It is a daily practice to grow stronger communities.

It is a way of life in a region where we value our local businesses and support the sustainable growth of our communities. We are citizen-consumers who understand the impact that every one of our hard-earned dollars can have on the vitality of the places where we live.

We know that spending our money locally not only supports our friends and neighbors who run the businesses that make our communities unique, but also the critical public services that keep us safe and uphold our quality of life.

We shop local — 365 days a year.

Why Shop Local?

As American consumer culture continues to prioritize online retailers over local store purchases, the people of Greater Peoria are forming their own shopping culture — one that positions our communities for long-term success.  


Every time you spend money, you are casting a vote for the kind of world you want.
