When you shop local, you’re doing more than investing in homegrown brands that you love. You’re investing in Jefferson Parish. Where you spend your dollars does make a difference. Especially now. For every dollar spent on local business, approximately 67 cents stays in the local community, funding schools, infrastructure and essential government services. Local businesses are the backbone of the Jefferson Parish economy. For years, our businesses have supported JP. Now, those same companies need our help. Let’s Shop Local. Eat Local. Spend Local. Stay Local. Support Local.
