Spend it! is a City of Escondido initiative to educate the community about the benefits of buying locally. Every taxable dollar spent in Escondido benefits important City-provided services like police and fire, senior services, libraries, street maintenance, street lights and parks. Sales tax generated from Escondido transactions stays in Escondido (1% of gross taxable sales) and contributes to the quality of life you enjoy.
Escondido's diverse shopping options include quaint downtown shops, major shopping centers and convenient neighborhood stores. Just about everything you need may be purchased locally.
So, Spend It! in Escondido and support local businesses. Save energy and time and keep sales tax revenues working in our city.
