When more people shop locally, more money stays in town. That money leads to more than just higher personal income. It builds parks, paves sidewalks, and keeps the fire station open.
A vibrant community of locally owned businesses is proven to strengthen the local economy in many ways, including:
Creating job openings
Paying better wages
Giving more to the community
Strengthening the middle class
More stability in recessions
WHO IS TOWNY?
Our mission is to make it easier to support your town without having to compromise on convenience or prices. We’re tired of seeing our favorite local business owners have to hang up their hats. We want to band together with locals to make our hometowns prosper.
Our app helps you find nearby locally owned businesses and rewards you with deals for visiting them, with cash back as well when you bank at our participating community banks and credit unions.
HOW DOES TOWNY HELP LOCAL BUSINESSES?
Towny provides a marketing platform that allows local businesses to offer and communicate deals to their customers. We hope that this will encourage locals to try out more businesses in town and frequent the ones they enjoy. Helping local business owners be more visible without the high price tag of fancy marketing campaigns will help them lower costs and increase revenue so they can thrive even when national chains come to town.
HOW DO I HELP SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES?
Download the app and start using deals around town! You don’t have to link a card (that’s an extra bonus), just go to one of the businesses on the app and show them their deal when you’re in store.
