Letter: 'Shop Oakdale'
Dear Oakdale Resident:
During this holiday season, the Oakdale City Council, the Economic Development Commission, and the Oakdale Business and Professional Association all strongly encourage you to visit our local community businesses for all of your shopping, dining, and professional service needs.
As you may know, Oakdale has an excellent history of promoting the local community, with a dedicated focus on enhancing our outstanding quality of life. In recent years, Oakdale has welcomed several great new retail centers that provide wonderful shopping and local dining opportunities. In addition, our community’s numerous office parks host a number of professional service providers which are ready to assist both residents and businesses with your every need. Many of these quality businesses can be found by checking out the Oakdale Business and Professional Association’s website at www.obpa-mn.com.
Supporting our local businesses has been critical to bouncing back after the difficult downturn of past years, and also provides valuable economic benefits. This includes fostering a vibrant business environment, creating local jobs, and supporting a diverse property tax base. In addition, locally owned businesses reinvest a large share of their revenue back into our local economy, and your continued support helps to enhance our entire community.
During this holiday season, we ask that you think Oakdale, shop Oakdale, and support our outstanding Oakdale business community!
On behalf of the the Oakdale City Council: Mayor Carmen Sarrack
On behalf of the Economic Development Commission: Chair Mark Landis
On behalf of the Oakdale Business and Professional Association Board: President Bill Burns
