BuyBOTHELL

Keep it Local. Watch it Thrive.

BuyBOTHELL is an awareness campaign to encourage people to shop locally, thereby putting tax dollars back into the local economy and increasing your business.  This conscious choice of where to shop supports a strong community where you live, work, or go to school. 

     

Why BuyBOTHELL?

  1. Put your taxes to good use. Purchasing in Bothell increases the City of Bothell's tax base. This results in affordable public services for the residents, business owners and employees who live and/or work in Bothell.
  2. Invest in our community. Many Bothell businesses are owned by people who live in Bothell, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in our community's future.
  3. Save time, money and the environment. Both residents and businesses save time by using the diverse services and shopping close to home.
  4. Embrace what makes Bothell unique. The unique character of Bothell is what brought us here and will keep us here. "When people go on vacation they generally seek out destinations that offer them the sense of being someplace, not just any place." - Richard Moe, President, National Historic Preservation Trust. We want to preserve our hometown atmosphere.
  5. Support local jobs for you and your neighbors. Thousands of Bothell residents are employed locally.
  6. Help out the environment. When residents and businesses of Bothell make local purchases, less transportation and gas is required. This means contributing less to congestion, pollution, sprawl and habitat loss.
  7. Support local non-profits. Bothell businesses provide much greater support for our local non-profits than businesses from other communities.
  8. Get better customer service! Local businesses take more time to get to know their customers.
  9. Buy what you want. Competition and diversity lead to more choices. A healthy small business district is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term. Many small businesses, each selecting products based on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, guarantee a much broader range of product choices.
  10. Encourage investment and business retention in Bothell. Entrepreneurs and skilled workers are more likely to invest and settle in communities that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character.
