Easter Spending – Hop to Shop Local

BUY LOCAL or the BUNNY gets it!!
Early estimates indicate the Easter Bunny will spend more than $13.03 billion* filling baskets this year. Independent We Stand is encouraging the Bunny to shop in locally-owned candy shops, bakeries and toy stores this year to have a more profound impact on local communities. Or how about buying vintage Easter Collectibles from your favorite Antique Shop?

If that spending were all directed to independent shops and businesses, it is estimated that nearly $8.86 billion** of those dollars would return right back into local economies, building better schools, infrastructure and community.
