Did you know? 52% of general revenue from local retailers is returned to the economy in which they are located. This doesn’t stop at just brick-and-mortar locations in the city but expands to the hundreds of cottage in-home and online businesses throughout Menifee that attend local markets, sell through online marketplaces, and provide unique retail experiences for consumers. Shopping online with these retailers also helps boost the local economy, encouraging innovation and optimal experiences at competitive retail prices, all while keeping tax dollars in the city for vital services that help support the local community.
“The objective of this campaign is to promote and maintain a thriving and sustainable local economy while fostering local pride in the community,” said Gina Gonzalez, Economic Development Director. “Small and locally based businesses make vital contributions to our city and are instrumental in the vibrancy of Menifee.”
