Giving Back to the Community

Local First Alliance members really know how to give back to the community. Year-round Local First Alliance members go above and beyond by putting the community and its residents first and giving back in any way they can.

This holiday season support the businesses that help make the Upper Valley so special by patronizing Local First Alliance members. When going out think local first and choose to visit local independent stores and services providers. Anytime of the year it is important to support local businesses but during the holiday season you can make an even bigger impact by also buying your gifts locally. Picking up gifts or gift certificates at Local First Alliance member businesses is easy and rewarding. Make a difference this year and Shift Your Shopping. Think Local First!

Gift Thoughtfully this Season!

Every dollar spent at a local, independent business returns 2-4 times more to be re-spent in the community than a dollar spent at a non-local business. With consumers reporting that they will spend an average $967 for holiday shopping this year, according to a 2017 National Retail Federation survey, a shift to local purchases represents a significant contribution to local jobs, taxes, and community support.

This season make sure your gift giving matches your community values and keep your money here at home by patronizing locally owned services and businesses. Search the Local First Alliance directory and shop at stores owned by your friends and neighbors, and enjoy expert service, unique product selection, and know that you are strengthening the Upper Valley by keeping your money circulating in our community.

To encourage shopping locally this season, the Shift Your Shopping campaign highlights the value and importance of thinking local first. Support this effort and visit our wonderful and diverse community of local businesses on these special days:

BOM Spotlight: West Lebanon Feed & Supply

We are excited to be celebrating Local First Alliance Green Circle Sponsor West Lebanon Feed & Supply (WLFS) as the November Business of the Month! Visit West Lebanon Feed & Supply November 17-30, congratulate them for being the BOM, and get a free treat for your four legged friend.

In addition to having an amazing selection of pet, garden, and gift items, WLFS is also a dedicated supporter of our community. They organize free educational community events year round, collect donations for pets in need, and generously support Upper Valley nonprofits. One small example of how they strengthen our community is that they are a collection hub for surplus eggs from customer’s flocks and the fresh local eggs are donated to Willing Hands, which then distributed them to area food pantries. Stop in WLFS and ask them about the many other ways they support our communities.

Since 1936 The Co-op Food Stores has been nourishing our community through their stores, educational activities, and community support. The co-op is owned by more than 20,000 families, and is one of the oldest and most successful co-ops in the United States. Anyone can shop, member or not. They also employ close to 400 people and have nearly 300 local suppliers, which means their impact ripples throughout our community.

Local First Alliance began as a Co-op local economy building initiative almost 10 years ago. The Co-op believes that a strong local economy keeps our community strong and resilient and started LFA to build support among the business community and to educate the community of the value locally owned businesses bring to the Upper Valley.

Co-op Food Store

The Co-op engages in dozens of community building project including Pennies for Change, which collected more than $264,000 last year for Upper Valley nonprofits (include 2,023.66 for Vital Communities!). The Co-op also supports the work of dozens of organizations doing good around the Upper Valley with food and product donations and staff community service hours. The Hanover Cooperative Community Funds supports Upper Valley nonprofits through annual donations and the Co-op recognizes the value of community service with the King Award each year.

When you shop at the Co-op Food Stores, you are not only buying the freshest products with a focus on locally sourced, at a fair price,  you are also supporting thier ability to strengthen our community in a multitude of ways. Nourish; cultivate; cooperate; because community matters.

Member Resources for Holiday Promotions

Trying to compete with box stores and online retail advertising budgets ability to dominate many marketing channels means that locally owned businesses need to be creative and work collaboratively. Plaid Friday and Cider Monday are grassroots campaigns that have spread nationally and are a good way to combat Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Small Business Saturday is an American Express initiative that provides outreach and resources for participating vendors. Local First Alliance will be promoting all of these local focused shopping days with our general outreach and marketing.

November 24
Plaid Friday

Plaid Friday started as answer to Black Friday. The name is based on the concept of plaid fabric where each thread is interwoven with others much like how independent small businesses are an integral part of the fabric of the community.

Many communities nationally celebrate shopping local on the Friday after Thanksgiving with in-store events, social media contests, and other creative ways to engage customers. Local First Alliance will promote your store events and be hosting a ‘plaid photo’ photo contest. This is still in development – stay tuned for more info.

Cider Monday

Cider Monday initiated by a New Hampshire based Local First group- Monadnock Buy Local and Toadstool Bookshop, an independent bookstore. The idea came about as a rebuttal to Cyber Monday by highlighting the expert service and relationships that are part of the local shopping experience. The businesses offered free cider to customers and other in-store events which is something online retailers can not do.

Local First Alliance will be promoting any and all events you have built around Cider Monday or any of the above campaigns, so let me know what you have going on.

Lufkin presentation

Lunch & Learn Presentation Recap

If you missed the LFA Lunch & Learn series, here is some useful information shared at these sessions.

 

Energy $avings for Small Businesses focused on business cost reduction through increased energy efficiency.

A look at the breakdown of energy usage for New England Commercial Buildings gives business owners an idea of what is likely utilizing the most energy in their establishment. As anyone who has spent a winter in the Upper Valley could guess, the largest percentage of energy was spent on heating. The percentage spent on heating is truly astounding- 43% of ALL energy is spent on heating, more than double the next closest energy sector!!

These are several programs available to small businesses in the region to get rebates for efficiency across multiple utility companies. A valuable tool to identify programs that could be useful to your business is the Small Business Energy Efficiency GuideIf you have specific questions about available resources to make your business more energy-efficient, email Paige Heverly, the Energy Project Coordinator. 

 

On August 13 Doug Lufkin, Lufkin Graphic Designs, put on a great presentation, Web Marketing for Small Businesses. Doug took the complicated world of  Search Engine Optimization and almost made it easy to understand. The bottom line is that a small business should consider who you want to visit your website and then select a few words or phrases that your perfect customer would likely type in the search box and then be sure to include those words in your website, blog posts, and on social media.

Engagement is also an important factor that will affect your visibility online. Comment, like, respond with all online engagement opportunities as a way to boost your ranking in search engines.

Hats for Whatever Shape Your Head is In

The Fat Hat corner in Quechee is a land mark most Upper Valley residents know. The funky old car, the lawn art, and now featuring Chef Brad’s Crazy Sides (another LFA member!). This  bustling retail corner is a far cry from the humble beginnings of Fat Hat Clothing more than 35 years ago when Joan Ecker was sewing hats under in a tent and selling them out of the back of an old Volvo.

Today F.H. Clothing Co. has a retail store in White River Junction (across from Northern Stage’s new theater) in addition to the main store in Quechee, an online market, and is carried by dozens of stores nationwide. With grit and determination, Joan Ecker built thins thriving local business. Read about the history of this local business on their website.

In addition to producing stylish, comfortable clothing (all made in the US…on purpose), their two stores carry gifts, menswear, and more creating a truly unique Upper Valley shopping experience.

And, if wonderful, high quality clothing isn’t enough, F.H Clothing donates dozens of fat hats to cancer patients going through chemo therapy. They also participate in the Job Shadow project of Upper Valley Business and Education Partnership. This spring they hosted 4 young young women for the job shadow day mentoring the next generation of female business owners.

These are only a few of the ways F.H. Clothing supports our community. Visit F.H Clothing for unique clothes and cool gifts, and to support a business that gives back to the community.
