Support Central Florida’s Local Economy

Unknown-1It’s hard to believe Black Friday is only three days off.

Black Friday. Such a pretty term, huh? With the way things are in the world right now, this may just truly be a black day.

I saw this ad in last week’s issue of Orlando Weekly, and it’s a great reminder that we should do our best to support the local economy by spending money at local businesses. It’s not always the easiest or most convenient thing to do, but if we make an effort we can really pump some business into the Central Florida community; the economic situation is critical all over the country right now.

What can you do to help? Well, like the ad says you can e-mail unchained[at]orlandoweekly[dot]com with “I Pledge,” or simply visit OrlandoWeekly.com/unchained to join in.

It’s a chance to contribute.

It’s an opprortunity to help.

It doesn’t take much.

So while it might be easier to take a trip to the local Target or head to the Mall at Millenia, why not check-out some of the stores in your neighborhood and give some props to local business owners?

    @Mark B. Yes, I thought the same exact thing when I saw the ad. I’m still trying to overlook the graphic….

    Great program, awful cartoon logo. Is it a civic-minded idea or a football team?

What are your thoughts on this topic?
