Buy local and clean the air

When Parkites patronize local businesses, their dollars recycle through the community, directly benefiting the Park City economy and consequently everyone who lives or visits here, according to the Park City Chamber/Bureau.

When locals shop at Park City businesses, their sales tax dollars support our free transit system. In fact, Park City’s acclaimed bio-diesel bus system wouldn’t be possible without the sales tax revenue generated from local spending. So next time residents need to buy new gear, they should consider taking a free ride to the merchant down the street, a prepared statement reads.

Merchants can help support the Keep it PC campaign by posting a "Participating Merchant" cling sticker in their storefront windows. Contact the Chamber/Bureau to request a free cling sticker or any other Buy Local Resources such as the merchant bagstuffer and Keep it PC bumper sticker.

Live local. Play local. Buy local. The Park City Chamber/Bureau prides itself on Park City’s blend of small mountain town charm and world class sophistication. Local businesses play a big part in making this special recipe work for everyone. Visit or call 649-6100.
