RelyLocal Shuttle helps Small Business Saturday be good to Downtown business owners

Many store owners attributed the uptick in part to a holiday shuttle charted by Nick Christensen, owner of Rely Local Racine County (a business promotion website) and co-sponsored by 21 local business owners.
“The small businesses are in battle with the big boxes of the world, so to speak,” Christensen said. “If we can spend more money with local businesses, more will stay in our local economy.”
That’s where the idea for the bus, which transports holiday shoppers to West Racine and Downtown, began. At first, the plan was just to have a Small Business Saturday shuttle, but Christensen said it blossomed into a five weekend service, which will continue running from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Saturday until Christmas......Small Business Saturday good to Downtown business owners

           There is no “we” in econo-me!

I admit it, I’m an eavesdropper. I’m horrible about it and it makes Sunday brunch a little awkward for my poor wife, who has gotten used to that blank look in my eyes when I’m really listening to the people behind her, not her…
Yesterday was no exception as I got to listen-in on the conversations of two couples next to us for about an hour. Here’s the gist:
Older Man: Upset because the city still hasn’t fixed a series of potholes near his house.
Young Woman: Loved the third book of the Hunger Games but didn’t buy it from the local bookstore, but from B&N.com because parking is a pain.
Young Man: Annoyed about the library’s shorter hours.
Older Woman: Looking forward to her photography class through parks and rec.
Young Man: Needed to drive to Bremerton next week to get a park for his boat because the local shop was too expensive.
Older Man: Complaining about how TurboTax screwed up his refund this year, having to file an amendment.
All Four: Wondering if the city was going to have enough money for a parade and fireworks this year for the 4th of July.
Well, if you look through some of the key points of this conversation, you’ll hopefully notice a couple of things. In short, without a healthy local economy driven through the sale of local products and services (and sponsorship or volunteerism by local businesses), there simply isn’t the tax revenue needed for things like road repairs, library hours, and fireworks.
Without a healthy local economy, there’s no hope of a healthy community.
Here are some solutions that I wanted to offer:
Older Man’ Curb: First, he needs to understand where the jurisdiction and budgets come for. Second, the last torrential rainfall for the season was about two days ago…
Young Woman’s Book: Stop being so lazy – there’s street parking and all sorts of parking lots within 50-100 yards of the store!
Young Man’s Library Gripe: Maybe if he was buying his boat parts locally (or voting to support the taxes needed), the library would have longer hours.
Older Woman’s Photo Class: Good! She should thank the local business owner who is giving his time to the community in this way!
Young Man’s Boat Parts: I got the sense that the man had never been to the local boat shop, as, if he had, he’d have known that the parts may have been 5-10% more expensive, certainly not worth a 90-minute round-trip drive and fuel expense (only to avoid one of the more knowledgeable marine store owners that I’ve ever met…)
Older Man’s Taxes: There are plenty of local CPA’s who would have likely skipped those mistakes and done a better job of finding deductions and credits. (All the while, having a portion of their revenue return to the local economy.)
Parade and Fireworks: See above. If you want fireworks, you have to pay for them…
Luckily, my wife has be trained to listen-only in my eavesdropping…
The moral of the story? If you want a healthy community, be a part of it!

"ROCK TO DEFEAT ALS" benefit in honor of Jim Marino on August 4th, 2012.

Racine, Wisconsin - July 26, 2012 - It's that time of year, again. Time to show our support for ALS! This year Vintage Rock Cafe will be hosting our second Annual "ROCK TO DEFEAT ALS" benefit in honor of Jim Marino on August 4th, 2012.
Jim Marino was afflicted with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), more popularly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, and sadly lost his battle on October 16th, 2009.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks nerve cells and pathways in the brain and spinal cord. When these cells die, voluntary muscle control and movement dies with them. The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS. The Association leads the way in research, patient and community services, public education, and advocacy - giving help and hope to those facing the disease.
Rock To Defeat ALS at Elmwood Plaza
rtdals logo
In memory of Jim Marino, Vintage Rock Cafe is hosting "Rock to Defeat ALS". Jim graduated from William Horlick High School "Class of 1969" and then joined the United States Marine Corps receiving an honorable discharge in 1971 due to a preexisting injury. Jim was honored to serve his community as a Racine Police Officer from 1975-1990. He received the Award of Excellence in police duty in 1981, 1987, and 1993. He also received the Meritorious Service Award in 1979. Jim always continued to think of himself as a cop. He retired from the police force to become a small business owner of Vintage Rock Café having several business partners over the years. Jim was an avid Harley Davidson rider seeing most of the country on his motorcycle. He was proud that he took 7 rides with the former Governor, Tommy Thompson. Jim loved oldies, rock 'n roll and country music and had an ability to captivate an audience with his story telling. He never met a casino or slot machine he didn't like. James Marino was a good man with a huge heart, generous pockets, an infectious smile, and a presence that was undeniable.
Jim was a United States Marine, a Racine Police Officer, an avid Harley Davidson rider and a previous owner of Vintage Rock Cafe, which is presently owned by his son Tony Marino. "Rock to Defeat ALS" will run from 12pm until 12am, on Saturday, August 4, 2012 at Elmwood Plaza Shopping Center Parking Lot in front of Vintage Rock Cafe, located at 3701 Durand Ave., Racine, Wisconsin. There will be live music performed by several local bands, along with great food, a silent auction, 50/50 raffle and raffle prizes. Join us for food, fun and great LIVE music, with all proceeds benefiting the ALS Association.
We would be grateful if you would be kind enough to pass this information along to any direct media access or web outlets or to any parties who may be interested. Please contact me if you have any questions. Jim Marino made a huge personal contribution to our community, and fought hard against this catastrophic disease. Please do anything you can to support this cause and honor our memory of him. Together we can make a difference.

Walmart and Ghost Towns........

Walmart and Ghost Towns

Ghost Towns

A major issue the company, Walmart, causes, is the creation of ghost towns. What Walmart will do, is spread their business to a small town where there are only small businesses run by the people who live there. They will lower their prices, extremely low, to the point of where the small businesses ran there can't compete! As we know, Walmart is a super-store that includes, fast food, gas stations, groceries, electronics, knick-knacks, office supplies, gardening supplies, plants, building supplies, sports supplies, and much more. Walmart basically puts all needs into one store, with cheap prices. This may be good, but because of their low prices, these small businesses go out of business. A good sum of the civilians that live their, own the businesses that are ran out by Walmart, and move to another small or large town, in search of a new place to put their business or just find a job. Another good sum of the residents are family, and when a part of the family moves, so does the entire family. Now, potentially, about one third of the past population will still be residing their. Then, their aren't enough people to keep Walmart in business in the small town, so Walmart moves. The people left their, will abandon their homes like the rest and go to search for a job, in a different location. With no people living their, and only small buildings there left to crumple under themselves, the once thriving town, becomes a ghost town......

Racine sees cash mob success: The flash mob phenomenon was applied to local spending

RACINE COUNTY — Cash mobs descended on two stores in Racine County on Saturday, bringing with them not eggs to lob or a verse to loudly recite in unison, but cold, hard cash to spend.
Think of them as a kinder, gentler, more lucrative version of a flash mob — where teens or adults gather en masse to sing, dance or even riot. The cash mobs, however, moved in without the snapping of bubble gum, hordes of text messages and disruption wreaked on everyone else’s day. Spending money was this mob’s mission on National Cash Mob Day.
“If we can get more money spent locally, the more money stays local,” said Nick Christensen, owner of RelyLocal, 335 Main St., Racine.
Racine County’s cash mob was one of more than 170 expected to hit local stores nationwide and in other countries Saturday, according to Christensen. The goal was for every person who participated to spend at least $10 on an item or items of their choosing at their local stores. No big box retailers were eligible.
The grass-roots movement is designed to try to help local businesses succeed and promote the environmental and economic benefits of buying food and products from local mom and pop-type shops, Christensen explained.
If more residents shop at these types of stores, more local businesses may open and remain in business, he said. Those store owners, in turn, may hire more staff — or at least not lay off their workers, he added.
“If more people are working the economy will fix itself,” Christensen said.
Almost a dozen people moved into Lee’s True Value Hardware, 1950 Taylor Ave., in Racine.
They bought batteries, light bulbs and other items at the hardware store.
Christie Kern of Mount Pleasant said it is the local businesses that give back to communities, sponsor events, and help families facing adversity or those in need. She likens it to “a choir singing instead of a soloist.
“I’ve always been a buy local-shop local person,” said Kern, who owns Racine Community Acupuncture in the Franksville area of Caledonia. “This is how a community takes care of itself. When I saw the cash mob on Facebook, I said ‘I’ll totally do it.’ ”
She said she would like for more people to understand the importance of shopping locally. It is more environmentally friendly, she said, and ultimately saves money in the long run.
Kern was one of at least 10 members of the cash mob buying up items at the hardware store. One couple perused the shelves for the right type of light bulbs. Several others asked for help from staff — who actually knew where items were located, offered advice, or even explained the differences between competing products.
If 10 people paid $10 each for their purchases, that would spell sales totaling more than $100.
“I don’t think it’s the money as much as what it means to build a local business,” owner Jerry Andersen said. “It’s about community.”
Big-box retailers, while often offering products at cheaper prices, typically don’t support the local Little League teams, or assist Girl and Boy Scout troops, he said. And, he reminded, “you get what you pay for.”
More than 300 businesses are involved in RelyLocal, Christensen said. The project began more than 18 months ago, he said.
This “shop local” push is not a marketing endeavor for new businesses, Andersen said.
“We may be reintroducing our store to people who maybe haven’t been in here for awhile,” he said. “It’s long-time names in the community you’ve forgotten about because you don’t see them on TV.”

Do we need another Walmart here in the Racine area?

Many Locally owned businesses would be effected by this new "neighborhood" Walmart on Hwy 20 near 31....please come out to the planning meeting at Mount Pleasant Village Hall 2-22-12 at 1:00 pm, we need to show support for our Local Businesses!
A healthy community depends on a healthy economy, and both completely depend on the local businesses in Racine! There are a number of great studies out there that illustrate how shopping locally will stimulate the Racine economy.
