CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) – Charleston’s local business owners are one of the most dynamic parts of our community’s unique identity, dabbling in various trades from handmade creations, to clothing, delicious food and bubbling brews.

When shopping for the upcoming holidays, you can support these creative proprietors by buying local, giving a boost to our growing economy.

Starting today through December 15, Lowcountry Local First is reminding everyone to buy local during Buy Local Month. This encourages citizens to keep holiday dollars in our community and is a grassroots movement dedicated to education and relationship building throughout the Holy City.

Jordan Amaker, director of marketing and communications for Lowcountry Local First, and Chris Winn, co-owner of Tradesman Brewing Co., joined us in-studio to talk the importance of this initiative, as well as offer details about an exciting upcoming event.
