Introducing Shop South, a buy-local campaign for county’s rural towns




– From the South Thurston Economic Development Initiative (STEDI):
Recently, eight rural communities in the South County began working together to support locally owned businesses. We’ve found that this collaborative work makes us stronger, better community members, and proud of the place we make home. We want you to join us!

Shop South is a buy-local campaign designed specifically for the unique needs of the rural business owners and rural shoppers in the South Thurston County area.

Supported by the South Thurston Economic Development Initiative (STEDI), the mission of this campaign is to instill local pride through intergenerational participation and to build community wealth. Representatives from Rochester, Grand Mound, Bucoda, Tenino, Rainier, Yelm, Roy, and McKenna have all been at the table in designing, implementing, and leading this effort. Continued inter-community collaboration is central to our success moving forward. We believe that the more local businesses can work together, the more successful we will be.
