Local Businesses - The nucleus of Glasgow's economy

At Sustainable Glasgow we believe that our local economy, and thus, our happiness, can be made more durable by doing business with local people and locally owned businesses. That belief is at the core of our work and our mission. We think that ownership matters. Last year, when we wanted to upgrade the stage for Bounty of the Barrens Market, two locally owned businesses stepped up and gave us the money and material necessary to build a better stage. That is not even mentioning the fine local folks who run the Glasgow division of BB&T bank, who gave BOTBM a home in the first place! Now that we are moving the market to the square, we are, frankly, embarrassed that we will be leaving that stage and that those local businesses will not get the recognition they deserve. Those businesses, Square Deal Lumber Company and HVAC Services, and BB&T should continue to enjoy the attention of all members and fans of Sustainable Glasgow. HVAC Services is again showing their commitment to the community by offering to donate $1 (up to $10,000) to the local Boys & Girls Club for everyone who visits their Facebook page Once you go there, click on the “Like” button and you will automatically make a donation to this worthy organization! We urge all members and friends of Sustainable Glasgow to help out businesses like these who do so much to reinforce our local economy. This is how we Live Local!
