[ARCHIVED] Double-Bonus for Shopping Cedar City


The $1 Million Deal!

Local shoppers are finding great deals at Cedar City retail outlets, motels and restaurants.

Shopping local also keeps a portion of sales tax revenues here to provide services from recreation, police and fire protection to other city and county amenities.

Additionally, this helps support many business owners and employees who are our friends and neighbors. Another bonus is that if retail revenue increases locally, we may see other stores and restaurants move into the area, giving us more variety in shopping.

What is the impact of not shopping local?

Let's suppose that each household shopped once a month outside the county, spending an average of $200 ($25 gas, $25 food, $150 retail spending).

The lost sales tax revenue per trip would be $12.20 per household for a total of $92,061.20 per month.

The estimated support through sales tax revenue we would give annually to other counties would be about $1 Million a year.
