The SECO Strong shop local initiative is brought to you by your regional economic developers throughout Southeast Colorado. This website is meant to encourage online sales for our local small businesses and entrepreneurs.
- Customers visit the SECO Strong website to browse local businesses throughout SECO.
- Customers select individual businesses to purchase gift certificates in $25 increments.
- Revenue is passed through the SECO Strong website and on to individual businesses.
- SECO Small Business Development Center (SECO SBDC) is sponsoring this project so that businesses are able to be listed on the SECO Strong website for FREE, and to ensure that businesses receive 100% of the revenue generated.
