REASONS TO SHOP LOCAL THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

There are many great reasons to shop Midwest City this holiday season. One of the benefits of shopping locally is that your sales tax dollars support vital services such as police, fire, streets, emergency services, and parks and recreation. When you shop in another city, you support these services in that city rather than in your own community. The graphic below shows where your sales taxes go.
