As many know, Andersonville is home to some marvelous locally owned businesses. These neighborhood gems reflect the pride we take in our neighborhood and provide us with many unique goods and services. As the holiday spending months come to an end it is important that we keep our small business owners in mind over the long winter months. Be it a bite at Ranalli’s or a brew at Andersonville Brewing, keeping our business local helps these businesses thrive.

Imagine if you will, a program that not only helps attract residents to local business, but rewards them for each dollar they spend. Does such a thing exist? Yes! LoLo, locals supporting locals, is a reward based company that encompasses the dollars spent on your debit or credit card into reward points. No extra cards to carry around, no complicated information to remember. As their website states, just spend like normal!

“This is where we live and work” said Matthew Simpson, co-founder of LoLo along with Clark Harris. “The larger the group of locals, the better foundation of support is created to help in the ups and downs of our economy” said Simpson. In a chance encounter meeting with our neighborhood’s Chamber of Commerce at a conference in California, Mr. Smith and Mr. Harris felt their dream paired perfectly to our neighborhood. The overall goal of the program is to stimulate local spending through a reward program while still giving local businesses the tools they need to succeed. Consumers receive 5% in rewards for each dollar spent at participating businesses. Rewards are redeemable at any participating local business, regardless of what participating business you have spent money at.

Currently the following businesses are participants of the LoLo program…

  • Jerry’s Sandwiches
  • City Olive
  • Early to Bed
  • Green Sky
  • Andersonville Brewing Company
  • Hamburger Mary’s
  • Notice
  • Ranalli’s of Andersonville
