An effort to get people to buy local has taken root in North Central Florida.
Today kicks off what's being called re-invest day by nonprofits Blue Oven Kitchens and Slow Food Gainesville.
Fourteen businesses are pooling together resources to encourage people to send their money at locally owned places.
The push to buy local is expected to stimulate local economies and help customers save money.
As an added incentive, the Buy Local Campaign is offering a discount card that is available for free at public libraries, the Santa Fe College Center for Innovation and Economic Development, or you can download it to your phone at www.buylocalncf.org.
