I am a big fan of the new South Shore Economic Development Consortium, an organization made up of economic development staff from Cudahy, St. Francis and South Milwaukee that takes a regional view on this key issue.
And I love the group’s latest concept.
The group is considering a “Buy South Shore” marketing campaign to promote buying locally and supporting businesses in the three communities.
It is gauging interest with a brief survey.
The survey asks respondents for their thoughts on a potential “Buy South Shore” website, merchant discount program and other efforts at promoting “buying local” in St. Francis, Cudahy and South Milwaukee.
Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey … and support South Shore businesses this holiday season and beyond.
Finding innovative approaches to economic development is vital to the future of South Milwaukee and the entire South Shore. It’s nice to see the consortium tackling this issue head on and with a regional perspective.
