The Wilton Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with local businesses, retailers, and merchants of our community to present “Shop Wilton Week” beginning Monday, November 9th and lasting through Sunday, November 15th for daily specials and promotions!
It is so important to SUPPORT AND SHOP LOCAL!
Shopping Wilton Stimulates Our Economy
In this economic climate, the best return on investment is in local business. It is estimated that for every dollar you spend, twice as much will be reinvested in the community by a local business. Significantly more money circulates in Wilton when purchases are made at locally- owned businesses. More money is kept in the community because locally-owned businesses purchase from other local businesses, service providers, and farms. Purchasing locally ensures that everyone shares in the success!
