In 1969, Lee Industries was founded in North Carolina. With a mission to manufacture quality, American-made furniture, they quickly turned into the thriving business that we know and love today. One thing that stands out about Lee is their commitment to communities – whether it’s the city you live in, or the United States in general! Thats why it came as no surprise to hear they had partnered with REstyleSOURCE for a program called Lee Loves Local – which provides consumers with a national guide to local shopping.
Each February (this year, it’s the 7th – 15th), the two companies set out to “share local love,” with the goal of highlighting brick and mortar shops and local businesses. All across the country, small businesses (and Lee dealers!) host events inviting folks to come in, get to know the business owners, and do a little shopping too. Each year is more successful than the last, and it’s become a bonafide movement.
From Charlotte to Chicago, Sugar Land to Seattle… there is definitely an event near you. Click here to find a Lee Loves Local party in your neighborhood. And before you hit the town, visit the Lee Loves Local inspiration board – some of the projects are pictured here and will have you ready to shop!
