About Shop Harney
Who are we and why do we want to keep dollars local?
Rural Businesses Need Rural Support
Shop Harney is a collaborative effort between The Foundry Collective, SBDC Oregon, BizHarney Opportunity Collaborative, Harney County's Chamber of Commerce, and Sage Designworks. We realized the need for a local support for our businesses during these always changing times. Our e-gift card program can be used throughout Harney County at many vendors you already shop with, and a full map and cards can be purchased here. Look for these stickers at participating merchants! Check back regularly, we will be adding some Shop Harney merchandise as well as updating out sponsor lists. Thanks for supporting our local rural business!
