Southern Standard has kicked off a new campaign called “Try Here, Buy Here.” The campaign is a combined effort of local businesses to encourage and educate residents on the many benefits of purchasing locally.A luncheon was held at Gondola with more than 70 local retail business owners invited to attend. Standard employee Sharon Patrick says the newspaper is spearheading the effort after being encouraged to do so by local business leaders.“We were approached some time ago by some local business people wanting to get together an effort to encourage people to shop at home,” said Patrick.
