Holiday shopping season begins
With the holidays fast approaching, now is the time to remember how shopping locally benefits the local community.
By spending money in Lincoln Parish — as opposed to Shreveport or Monroe — residents are helping local businesses to thrive. Consequently, there will be fewer local layoffs and perhaps more job openings.
Local sales tax collections benefit not only schools, but other governmental entities. Local sales tax collections support everything from road repairs to fire and police protection.
