104.5 the U Missoula is excited about the ho ho ho Holidays...
It’s a special time of year where pie with breakfast and pie for dinner aren’t as frowned upon. To celebrate the season of pie and giving 104.5 the U want’s to challenge our listeners to shop local and shop small this holiday. Our local businesses are a part of what makes our community so special. When you spend money locally, you make a big difference in the lives of folks right here in our community. Every purchase you make with a local vendor keeps more money locally. When you ‘vote’ with your dollars those dollars make a difference, in helping a local business hire more employees, investing in our communities future. Small businesses donate more to charity events and fundraisers, I mean c’mon Jeff Bezos sure isn’t going to sponsor your kids ball team. If only half of our residents spent $100 locally this holiday season, we’d pump over $3 million back into our local economy!
As a locally owned and small business ourselves we are challenging our listeners and ourselves to spend $100 locally this holiday season! Let’s support small businesses and in turn help our community. Thanks to our local partners in the Give the Gift of Local challenge: Meadowsweet Herbs, Silverleaf Missoula, Skin Chic, Parkside Credit Union, Allegiance Benefit Plan Management, FLOAT Missoula, Lolo Liquor, Blackfoot River Outfitters, Noteworthy Paper & Press , Ducrey Chocolate Makers & Cafe, Art Attic Framing & Design, Energy Partners, The Olive Branch at the JRPC, Upcycled and QualityCovidMasks.com
