Consumers encouraged to 'Shop Illinois Saturday' on Oct. 4

ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Consumers are encouraged to "Shop Illinois Saturday" on Oct. 4 by devoting a portion of their budget to purchasing Illinois-made products.

Illinois Main Street and the Illinois Department of Agriculture are part of the effort to boost Illinois' economy and generate consumer and business awareness of Illinois-made products.

The challenge encourages every Illinois household to pledge $10 to purchase a product made in the state.

"Buying goods and services locally makes good sense and helps support the small businesses that are the backbone of our economy," says Gov. Pat Quinn.
