Think Vermilion County First

Vermilion Advantage realizes how important it is for the local economy to keep retail sales dollars local. In an effort to address some of the high leakage dollars to other communities and to raise consumer awareness of products produced and made right here at home, an initiative called “Think Vermilion County First” was created in 2002. The overall message of the initiative is to support local businesses by spending dollars locally.
