Latest News


The Buy Local movement has been gathering momentum in the United States where many local independent businesses are doing it tough as a result of the Global Financial Crisis.

Research in the U.S. shows that Buy Local Campaigns help build local economies and community resilience.

Research by several economists indicates that small business annual revenue growth in areas with a Buy Local campaign is double that in areas with no campaign.

Money spent in the local economy stays in the local economy where it increases in value due to the economic multiplier effect. Money spent outside the local economy contributes nothing

The SRBA ‘Buy Local’ campaign is multi-faceted: infomercial media releases, Buy Local marketing merchandise and display material, shirts, regular prize draws, a consumer driven business awards program and a Somerset Live Love Buy Local Festival celebrating all that is great about Somerset.

All local businesses are welcome to participate - for more info, please click here.
