Today, the City of Twin Falls joined the Idaho Department of Commerce to relaunch the second annual Support Local Gems initiative, which will serve as an all-day event to support Idaho small businesses after a year of significant challenges.
On Friday, May 21, 2021, Idahoans are invited to Support Local Gems by giving their business to their favorite local shops and restaurants. Idahoans can get involved by shopping at a small business, dining safely at an independent restaurant, purchasing a gift card for a loved one, writing a review online, or simply saying “thank you” to a small business they love.
Partners of the Local Gems initiative include Governor Brad Little, Senator Jim Risch, Senator Mike Crapo, Congressman Mike Simpson, Congressman Russ Fulcher, Association of Idaho Cities, Idaho Association of Counties, Idaho Chamber Alliance, Idaho Retailers Association, Idaho Lodging and Restaurant Association, and Idaho Association of Commerce & Industry.
“Over the last year, Idaho’s independent retailers and restaurants did an exceptional job adapting to the challenges of the pandemic. But even as life begins to return to normal, small businesses still need support,” said Sen. Risch.
