The Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce, at the corner of the Beeline Hwy. and Historic Main Street, wants residents to spend as much of their holiday budget as possible in Payson, Pine and Star Valley. For every $100 spent with local businesses, $68 of it supports the area’s economy.

If you take $100 and you spend it, how much of it will circulate around Rim Country before it gets back to the Federal Shredder? If you spend it online, using an outside Web site, none — with no additional benefit to anyone in Rim Country. If you go outside our area, again, none would benefit our community. If you spend it in a national chain, the average is $43. If you spend it in a locally owned business, $68 will circulate in Rim Country.*
