Success Stories

There is no other network – paid or not paid – that provides the introductions to serious people in the York business community as does BLC. My involvement with BLC has both personally & professionally very rewarding. Anyone focused on growing their business has to give serious thought as to why they don’t belong. Meet good people, establish connections & introductions while serving our community – show me where else that can happen as effectively as it has here. The message of keeping our money local makes so much sense and it is wonderful to be a part of this group.
Lou Lavetan, SparkleWash of York

“I love this organization. I have met fantastic people and have done several jobs because of the Buy Local Coalition.”
-John Kimmel, Splash Window Cleaning

“I was in need of a groomer for my dog and didn’t want to take him to a chain pet store. I used the directory on the Buy Local Coalition website to find a local member and I could not be happier with my decision. Puppy Tails, a Buy Local Coalition member, was the groomer that I chose and they did a wonderful job. My dog, Ralphie, was grinning from ear to ear when we left! I will definitely be going back in the future!”
-Amanda Ellis, Penn Waste

“The team at Signs By Tomorrow in York helped us meet a tight deadline in printing promotional banners for our marketing. They were available to answer all of our questions about artwork and the pricing was very reasonable.”
-Mike Dalton, A+ Mailing Solutions

“Instead of purchasing trophies on line I ordered them from fellow Buy Local Coalition member T&J Trophies. The personalized service was excellent!”
-Crystal Davis, Granfalloons Tavern

“I just wanted to thank you, and let you know that the newsletter marketing has been successful and just today sold a job to a Buy Local Partner. Love my local family, you guys are the best!”
-David Brooks, Nicely Done Sites
