Support Local Gems: All Season Long

Support Idaho Small Businesses this Holiday Season

This year has been tough on small businesses as they contend with supply chain issues, rising inflation, and more. This holiday season, it’s important for Idahoans to lend our support to the small businesses that make our state so special.

What is the Support Local Gems initiative?

Support Local Gems: All Season Long is a holiday revival of the statewide Support Local Gems public awareness campaign that encourages Idahoans to support the small businesses that make Idaho special.

When is Support Local Gems happening?

During the month of December, show your love for Idaho’s small businesses. Dine at an independent restaurant, purchase a gift for a loved one at a local retailer, update your wardrobe at a main street boutique, and more. But why stop there? Every day is a good day to Support Local Gems! Your support helps to preserve the jobs and local character that make Idaho’s communities vibrant.

How can I Support Local Gems?

There are so many ways to support Idaho’s small businesses, some of which don’t cost anything. This December, dine outside at your favorite restaurant or order takeout, shop in person or online at a local retailer, purchase a gift card, write a positive review for your favorite local business, or just say “thank you” to a business in your community for all that they do.
