Buy Lincoln FIrst is a new program from the Chamber of Commerce. Our goal is to help generate additional business interaction between companies in the Lincoln Area.
The Lincoln Chamber of Commerce and the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development take pride in being a proactive organization. Our goal is to create new opportunities for existing companies here in Lincoln. We take pride in our city and the businesses that develop here. The more awareness that we can generate for Lincoln based products and services, the more we can grow our sales tax base and boost our economy. We know you can't make all of your purchases here in Lincoln, but please remember to try to "Buy Lincoln First".
It is estimated that Lincoln's businesses and government entities annually spend $3-$4 billion in goods and services with vendors outside of Lincoln.
The Lincoln Chamber of Commerce is asking local businesses to shift just 5% of their available purchases from vendors outside of our community to vendors inside our community.
A shift in just 5% of available purchases could generate an additional $175 million in local sales, potentially leading to new job growth and additional revenue for city services.
