Keeping Your Irish Eyes Local

Here is a quick read from Independent We Stand, about the importance of buying locally to support or local economy. We'd love to see you at Johnny's!

This St. Patrick’s Day Keep Your Irish Eyes Local!

St. Patrick’s Day spending in 2011 is projected to be approximately $4.14 billion*. If you spend your St. Patty’s dollars this year at a locally owned Irish restaurant or pub, a total of $2.81 billion would be reinvested in local communities across the U.S. If you plan on celebrating at a national chain, your local reinvestment drops to only $1.98 billion. This St. Patrick’s Day spread your green locally and help revive your local economy.
