Shopping Locally

Everyone knows shopping locally is a good way to support small businesses, but did you know that it goes beyond just your one purchase? Locally-owned businesses often purchase from other local businesses, who then in turn purchase from another locally owned business, and so on. One purchase by you can make a difference to many businesses. Local business owners also donate to local charities than non-local owners and when we all work together we create that unique character that Monmouth provides.
As you explore our community you’ll frequently see our local business owners around town with their family, friends, or even in someone else’s shop. This creates a dynamic friendly atmosphere which ensures the best possible customer service when you visit someone’s establishment. So, when you’re thinking of voting with your wallet, please consider voting for Monmouth and all we have to offer. If you are looking for any particular type of business, check out our business directory, or if you’re looking for a gift, check out our gift list below. Just want to explore? We’ve got that too, check out the explore page for fun things to do around our town for both residents and out-of-towners (and if you’re staying the night don’t forget to check out Mamare’s or The College Inn). We look forward to seeing you soon!
