We have all heard of the Shop Small initiative. There are frequent reminders on Facebook and other social media to shop at small businesses. The creation of Small Business Saturday in November of every year was a brilliant move in the right direction to remind us to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. A group in Kansas City is taking this idea a few steps further.
Hang Ups in KC is excited and proud to join the Made In Kansas City initiative. The Made in Kansas City initiators are Local Start.org, a not for profit organization focused on strengthening the local economy of the greater Kansas City and surrounding areas. In the words of the folks at Local Start.org “This marks a deeper step on our part to strengthen the local economy by creating an environment where KC products are the first choice, where they are displayed with pride in our establishments and where you can find those products quickly and easily. We know that by providing people with the tools to choose local products, we empower them to build a smarter and stronger Kansas City.”
Keep an eye out online and in local establishments for this logo to know that you are buying products produced in Kansas City:
