Shop Local … and Keep The Money on the Mountain!
It’s May, which only means graduation plans are underway in many homes and neighborhoods throughout the Truckee and Lake Tahoe regions. At Elder Group Tahoe Real Estate, we have kids in school as well and whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, graduation or the celebration of our own Dad’s Day for Desmond Elder, we always encourage our family and friends to shop local.
And thanks to a very well organized program entitled SHOP NORTH TAHOE TRUCKEE, there is no reason any season to go out of town to purchase something extraordinary for your special occasion.
As the website notes:
“The Shop Local program was designed to support local businesses, reduce the carbon footprint of locals traveling outside of their community to shop, and protect the region’s local character. Money spent at local businesses re-circulates through wages and taxes, benefiting the economic health of the entire community and supporting unique local businesses.”
