‘Buy in Farragut’ response positive


What can you do this holiday season to show your support for local businesses as well as improve tax revenue for the Town? “Buy in Farragut,” of course.

The “Buy in Farragut” Campaign, which kicked off its second year during the Town’s annual Celebrate the Season event, Thursday, Nov. 29, is set to run through Monday, Dec. 24.

“We have had positive response from the businesses,” Sue Stuhl, Town director of leisure services, said.

“We have 51 businesses that have registered. Not all of those got listed on the [flier] because they missed the deadline, but they are listed on our Web site and on our cable station [Charter Cable Channel Three],” she added.

Stuhl plans to send a survey to the participating businesses after the program concludes to help gauge the its success. She said because the Town is not privy to the participating business’ financial information she will have no way of knowing how successful the program was for the Town as a whole.

Tamara Miller, co-owner of Turtleheads Tea and Coffee Com-pany, one of the businesses participating in the campaign, said she has received positive responses from her customers.

“Some are carrying around their flyers asking what the weekly specials are. We have had some [customers] come in and ask what it means, because we have the fliers up everywhere.

“I actually had one lady come in and say she loves to support local [businesses] and it is great we do this sort of thing,” she said.

Each participating business decides what its specials will be. Some are weekly, while others have decided to run the same special for the duration of the campaign.

The following is a list of a few participating businesses and their special Buy in Farragut savings:
