    The BUY ILLINOIS Challenge

    Buy Local Saturday - October 4, 2014

    Let's encourage every Illinois household to take a pledge to dedicate $10 of their existing weekly budget to the purchase of Illinois products. If each of the 4.7 million Illinois households take the pledge to dedicate just $10 per week to buy Illinois Products, more than $47 million would be generated for the Illinois economy in one month! This will provide a tremendous boost to local Illinois companies — many of which are owned by your friends and neighbors.
