Share the Love 2019

Each Thursday in February, participants will donate 10% or 15% of their sales for that day to a charity of their choice. Our local businesses, including DMSA members, are at the vibrant heart of Downtown Denton, as are our local nonprofit organizations. Each week, we'll showcase member businesses and how they choose to give back to the community via social media.  At the end of the month, we’ll share with everyone the total amount of funds raised during this campaign. Our hope is that moving forward into 2019, our community members feel a deeper connection with Downtown Denton, the local business community, and supportive organizations. Let's continue to Share the Love across Denton and onward. 


Why Shop Local? The Facts

We could spend all day talking about why you should shop local, but the facts speak for themselves. When you shop local, you help keep your community thriving, which keeps everyone happy. Check out a few interesting facts from our friends at City of Denton below.

  • Only one in six adults purchases locally available products and services. If just half the Denton population spent $50 each month in Denton's independently owned stores, their purchases would generate more than $6.5 million dollars per year in sales.

  • Each time you spend money on dining, retail, or entertainment, you are charged an 8.25 percent sales tax. A portion of that sales tax goes to the city in which you buy the goods or services. When you shop in Denton, you support our city services such as the police and fire departments, streets, libraries, and parks.
