We’ve launched a new feature, Buy Rogue Valley, that will appear on our business pages regularly. Today’s story discusses the economic value of buying locally and offers up a couple of local options for shoppers. We’re aiming to publish information about local products twice a week on an ongoing basis. If you have an idea for a product to feature, send info to firstname.lastname@example.org. We need the name of the business, name of the product, no more than 25 words of description, cost and where it can be purchased. The products must be produced and sold locally. (No produce or wines — just too many of them to choose from.) Check out today’s story.
