FAIRFIELD, Calif. - Dec. 6, 2022 - PRLog -- Local firm BrandGOV, working in conjunction with Solano County, will kick off a new venture, Shop Solano, this week, just as the holiday shopping season starts.  The program features an online directory of Solano County small businesses and any shopping incentives they offer; a listing of job opportunities at those businesses and at community, government and private sector agencies; and a posting of other neighborhood resources.  Soon, Shop Solano will also include an e-gift card deal where shoppers who buy a $100 card will get a $25 bonus card for free.

"I want to emphasize this is not simply a local shopping-incentive endeavor; it's much more," says BrandGOV CEO K. Patrice Williams.  "The program is meant to help increase sales at our local businesses and provide resources, such as job and other community-based information. This can be used to better the health and wellbeing of county residents, increasing their economic stability."

The company's researchers studied the Healthy Places Index - a data tool widely used to assess health equity issues - to identify at-risk neighborhoods in the county and the businesses located there.  As a result, 638 businesses have been placed in the online directory initially and the project's other resource information is expected to be especially helpful in underserved communities. Shop Solano is meant to bring support to these businesses, and their locales, by contributing to their overall economic resilience, stability and fiscal health.  Any Solano County business can participate in the program.  Businessowners who want to sign-up should visit

"We want people to commit to making family purchases locally; to change their spending habits," Williams says.  "That means looking at goods and services that they normally use or buy and going to to see what local merchants have to offer; it means making a commitment to spend locally in 2023.  When our small businesses thrive and grow, they hire local people; our employment numbers go up; we all benefit; it makes us all feel good."

Shop Solano is being run as part of BrandGOV's Empower Solano initiative.  The company was hired by the Solano County Health Department to develop and administer the program.  To learn more about the work being done through Empower Solano, how to get involved and to sign-up for its newsletter, visit
