The Town of Parker is excited to announce a new initiative aimed at encouraging residents and visitors to support local businesses. The "Shop Parker" program will strive to create awareness within our community about the benefits of keeping our sales tax dollars inside the Town’s footprint.
Parker has been very fortunate in recent years to benefit from a strong local economy thanks to a unique collection of businesses that ranks among the most successful and diverse in the Denver metro area. The results of this strong local commerce have been extremely favorable to the community. Parker now boasts some of the area’s best public amenities, including state-of-the-art recreational facilities, numerous parks and trails, lively community events and so much more.
Individuals who shop locally take an active role in growing the Parker community, as area businesses pump dollars back into the local economy by way of taxes, payroll and purchases. This means more money for new jobs, improved roads and other important services. This process is not limited to just dollars spent at locally-owned or independent retailers. Shopping at all Parker businesses makes a positive impact on our economy, and the Town is committed to supporting all aspects of local commerce.
In the coming months, you will notice window stickers on storefronts of local businesses that have chosen to adopt the Shop Parker cause. Show these merchants just how much civic pride you have by supporting their businesses, and help keep our local economy strong!
