What is Buy Mower, Grow Mower?

We encourage you to let people know you're committed to your community and ask that you include the campaign in your marketing efforts.  Another way to contribute is by designating 10 percent of your annual membership dues or $25.  This money will be used to further enhance marketing efforts for the Be Loyal. Shop Local., Buy Mower, Grow Mower campaign.   The Chamber currently spends about $16,000, each year, for the promotion and implementation of these programs.

How can my business contribute to Buy Mower, Grow Mower?

The Austin Area Chamber of Commerce launched Buy Mower, Grow Mower to raise public awareness, revitalize our area economy and create a better future for our entire community.  We're not asking everyone to spend all their money in Mower County - that wouldn't be realistic.  But we do believe it is important to ask everyone to consider switching back some of their spending to Mower County businesses.  If we can even shift 10 percent of the current out-of-area purchases back to Mower County businesses, we are taking an active role in creating a stronger economy for everyone.

We Support Buy Mower, Do You?

Our ultimate goal is to increase local purchases by $20 million or more.  We'll do this by increasing public awareness about the advantages of buying from local businesses and promoting area businesses.  We hope to not only improve the bottom line for these businesses, but also improve the local economy overall.
