Do you remember when we kicked off the Go Local Slogan contest here? And then needed your help selecting from the top four here? If you don’t, here’s the gist: we’ve been looking for a slogan to encourage people to shop, dine and support local businesses in Decatur and decided to reach out to the community for help. Well, after receiving more than 250 entries, creating a Go Local committee made up of local business owners, narrowing down the entries to the top four, we’ve got our winning slogan:
“Keep it Indie-Catur” is the brainchild of Dave and Talia Blanchard (that’s right, one of the owners of Brick Store and the owner of Squash Blossom Boutique). It doesn’t get much more local than that!
In the upcoming months, you’ll start seeing local shop and restaurant employees wearing Keep it Indie-Catur shirts and matching signs in storefront windows. If you’re a fan of keeping it local, you’ll be able to purchase your own shirt at a local establishment soon. Stay tuned for details.
