COVA BIZ Best of Business Award for Best Local App

Thank to all the readers for their support. Downloading the LOVEVA App may seem playful but it is serious business. Keeping our dollars local by shopping at hard working independent stores is community activism at its finest. Every dollar spent locally gets turned around at least three times. That means that the dollar does not go to a corporate office somewhere in the world but goes to support a local advertising campaign which buys t-shirts for a local soccer team which buys them from a local screen printer. Buy local is not just a mantra, it means a great deal to someone you know.

Independents Week is July 1 – 7

Independents Week is an annual campaign, encompassing July 4, to engage local independent businesses and citizens in celebrating entrepreneurial spirit and the freedom our local businesses embody. Independents Week also is an occasion to recognize small businesses’ contributions to the community–and to affirm citizens’ role in shaping their community’s future.
