Support locally-owned, independent business!
Curious about the simple message conveyed by those popular red shirts showing up around town?
We chose red not just because it is a really cool color and looks great with vintage jeans, but also to remind us of our LOVE for our great town nestled in the hills of East Kentucky and to remind us to STOP and think of what we can do to keep it uniquely ours. From our spending habits to our civic engagement, we need to be intentional about keeping Morehead unique.
What can you do to help us remain Uniquely Morehead? It’s pretty simple, really. Be a wise consumer just patronize independent, locally-owned businesses wherever and whenever possible, and encourage others to do the same.
Going out for coffee? Check out our local coffee shop or visit our local bakery to satisfy your sweet tooth. Need a gift for a friend’s birthday? We suggest a trip to one of our great local gifts, novelty shops, or better yet purchase a one-of-a-kind from a local artist. Looking for a good restaurant? Make a little extra effort to try one of our local restaurants or the seasonal farmers markets. There are locally-owned options for just about anything you can find at a chain store, so just take a moment to think before you open your wallet.
As for spreading the word, you can find Uniquely Morehead buttons and t-shirts at some of the businesses who support our campaign -- or visit our shop.
