Shop & Dine Henderson County starts Jan. 12

Press release

Shop & Dine Henderson County starts Jan. 12

The Henderson County Chamber of Commerce urges all residents to shop and dine in Henderson County. Shopping locally not only benefits our merchants and their employees, it adds to local government revenue in the form of sales tax dollars. North Carolina collects a 6.75-cent sales tax on every dollar spent – 2.25 of those cents are returned to the county in which the taxed items were purchased. Sales taxes collected by Henderson County businesses make up over 20% of the county’s budget and between 20-30% of our municipalities’ budget, which provides for school needs, infrastructure and countless other items we enjoy and expect as residents here.

Plus, the Henderson County Chamber of Commerce, Henderson County Government and the City of Hendersonville are adding an additional incentive for your local patronage – a $500 Valentine’s package! Each $100 you spend with Henderson County merchants between January 12th and February 11th, 2014 entitles you to fill out an entry for the drawing. Just bring your receipts by the Chamber of Commerce office at 204 Kanuga Road (corner of Kanuga and Church Street) in downtown Hendersonville. A winner will be drawn on February 12th.

So shop and dine in Henderson County and increase your opportunity to win! For more information on the “Shop & Dine Henderson County” campaign please call 828.692.1413 or visit
