In the big scheme of things, $20 to spend doesn’t seem like very much money. However, when the $20 is multiplied by hundreds, or even thousands of spending customers, it’s amazing just how far $20 can go.
Today has been designated as “Spend $20 on the 20th” day in Brewton and East Brewton.
Participating merchants have prepared for the event by offering special deals, discounts or bonus items to those who chose to take part in a unique spending spree on this, the 20th day of the month.
When consumers spend their money at home it helps provide a way to keep local money local and help the Brewton and East Brewton economy flourish.
As business owners see their revenues increase, it’s almost a sure bet that their expenditures will also increase. It’s the way of American life and can be seen from the smallest shop owner to the biggest retailer in the land.
We encourage Brewton and East Brewton residents to get out today and do some shopping. 
Chances are you would have spent $20 today anyway, so why not let your money make a statement.
Let area merchants know that you have a loyalty to your hometown. Let your $20 shout for our local economy today.
