A Message from WPMB-WKRV General Manager and Vandalia Chamber of Commerce President Todd Stapleton:
The start of the school year is nearly upon and it’s kind of a return to the normal hustle and bustle, getting kids to and from events and school stuff. Before you know it, the holidays will be upon us. Now that we get settled back into that routine, let’s remember to make part of that routine shopping local. When you keep your dollars in the community, it helps make the community stronger. And when you spend locally, better than two-thirds of that money will stay right here in the community. It’s a very good cycle. So as we get back into that school year routine, remember to make shopping local part of what you do each day. Let’s remember to shop local throughout this year.
