Shop QC for Back to School Shopping and Support Your Local Community
The first day of school is right around the corner, and the Town of Queen Creek is encouraging residents to Shop QC for any back to school needs! From backpacks, lunch boxes and paper, your Queen Creek stores have all your back to school needs! And, when you shop Queen Creek, you not only support local businesses, you also support a variety of community programs.
Sales tax revenues received from shopping local help maintain Town programs and services; sales tax is the largest contributor to the Town’s operating revenues, representing 34 percent of the fiscal year 2018/2019 budget. Public safety, roadway improvements, parks and recreation programs are all supported through operating revenues; you can help support your community while doing your shopping!
To help increase awareness of local businesses, and the benefits of shopping local, the Town offers a Shop Queen Creek program. To register your Queen Creek business in the Shop QC program, complete an online registration form at QueenCreek.org/ShopQC. There is no cost to join and benefits include a listing on the Town’s website, promotional support through the Town’s social media channels and access to a variety of marketing and promotional opportunities. Businesses must be in the Town limits and/or be a member of the Queen Creek Chamber of Commerce.
