Shop Local in the Ridgway Area

Celebrate Our Community – Shop, Dine & Stay Local This Winter.

  • When you spend $100 at a local Ridgway business, approximately $68 is reinvested into our community.
  • When you spend $100 at an out-of-county merchant, $0 are invested in our community.
  • So for your next purchase, we encourage you to think local!

Find business hours, deals, specials, and other information to help you spend your dollars with Ridgway area businesses. From December to March, you'll not only get some great products and services but also support our local entrepreneurs and their employees.

Local purchases support local salaries, our friends, family, and neighbors. Local businesses support their own growth by making purchases from other local merchants. This includes professional services like accounting, construction, and website design, and local supply purchases like printing as well as local food for our restaurants. The town of Ridgway's primary revenue source is sales tax. Your local purchases directly support all of the town services that we rely on as a community - roads, emergency services, and our town parks. All of these services are dependent on local purchasing activity. Ridgway is fortunate to have a vibrant nonprofit community supporting many important causes. Local businesses are a primary donor to our local nonprofits; therefore, our local nonprofits' success is dependent on our local businesses' success.
