Pendleton County Cooperative Extension Service will conduct a “Shop Like a Local Challenge” during the summer of 2016. Goals for the challenge will be to raise awareness of locally-owned small businesses and encourage area residents to shop at them. The challenge will run each month and will encourage community members to record their spending at locally own businesses.  Those who spend and visit the most businesses will be rewarded.  We will also market the challenge at all small business, on social media sites, local paper, on a billboard in county and with yard signs through out the community.
