MERCO SUPPORTS “GROW MERCED/BUY LOCAL” MOVEMENT
What is Grow Merced?
Grow Merced is a countywide awareness program for citizens and business owners to promote the economic and social value of supporting local businesses within our community.
Why Buy Local?
Here are a couple of reasons why “Buy Local” makes sense:
• Creates new jobs and sustains existing jobs.
• Every dollar spent at a locally owned business returns five times that amount within our community through city/county taxes, employee wages, and the purchase of other local goods and services.
What Can I Do?
As a consumer, look for opportunities to buy local instead of shopping on the internet or travelling out of town.
As a member of MERCO Credit Union, you are supporting a local business that started here in Merced County back in 1954.
How Does MERCO Support “Buy Local”?
MERCO offers a “Buy Local, Borrow Local” auto loan discount program. As an incentive to buy local, MERCO gives a .50% discount on your auto loan rate if you buy your auto from a local dealer in Merced County. In addition, we share our success by support local charities and events…such as the Merco Credit Union Cycling Classic.
Why Is “Buy Local” Important?
Our community’s formula for success is simple…Think Local, Buy Local, Support Local. We all have a stake and responsibility in this…we are only as successful as our neighbor.
