New Group Unveils "Buy Local" Campaign

By Mark Scott

Buffalo, NY – A local, non-profit group called Buffalo First server is encouraging area business owners to join a "buy local" campaign. More than 100 firms have already signed on. This Thursday, the group will launch a "Buy Buffalo Week" promotion.

The "buy local" campaign sends a message about the social and economic benefits locally-owned businesses bring to the community. Amy Kedron and Brendan Biddlecom are co-founders of Buffalo First. They joined us in studio to talk more about the campaign to educate people about the benefits of shopping locally.
