(PRWEB) September 22, 2011

Three separate, independently owned retailers are cooperating in order to triumph over temporary Halloween stores. The Watanabe, Mangelsen and Ibsen families have purchased a joint billboard, radio and television advertising to get their message out to the Omaha community.

By combining their marketing efforts through this campaign, they intend to encourage shoppers to support local businesses like theirs, and keep their hard earned money in Omaha this Halloween. They have also launched a joint Facebook page...ShopLocalHalloween.

Here are a few statistics: When you make a purchase locally, 68% of your money returns to the community*. Only 43% stays in the area if you shop at a chain store, and 0% stays if you shop online. (*through payroll, taxes and other expenditures.)

Ibsen Costume, Mangelsen's and Nobbies are family run businesses in which the owners are involved with every aspect of the business, including personally helping customers. Their product buyers work in the stores everyday instead of in corporate offices. This reason alone makes them more knowledgeable about their products and gives them the ability to shop specifically for the customers in this geographic area.

With 100 years experience between them, these three locally owned stores have contributed to the Omaha community in many different ways, sponsoring local charities and schools, and various local events to help support the community.
