Why More are Buying Into 'Buy Local'

Business Week, March 1, 2010
Excerpt: "Advocates say that locally owned stores spend proportionately more on payroll than chains and that buying local will save jobs. Plus, for every $100 spent at a locally owned store, $45 remains in the local economy, compared with about $13 per $100 spent at a big box, according to research by the nonprofit Institute for Local Self-Reliance and Austin (Tex.) consulting firm Civic Economics. That's because independents tend to do their purchasing locally, while chains usually centralize it from a head office."

About the Organization

The Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Business & Professional Association was founded in 1987 to encourage, support, and promote business in the Towns of Ballston and Glenville, as well as in the Burnt Hills School District, and to enhance the quality of life in this area.

Our monthly general meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month. We hope that you will consider attending to learn how we can help each other while working to create a positive community spirit. Or if you are interested in joining the organization, let us know!

Our first meetings were held in restaurants, and that tradition continues today. Terry Morris served as the first president to get the organization off the ground, and then Pat DiCesare was voted to leadership near the end of that first year. To see the succession of presidents to date, click here

In 1994 the association became incorporated, thanks to the support of Bob VanVranken, attorney and charter member. Now we are known officially as the BH-BL BPA Inc.
