Hometown Local

Hometown Local is an initiative started by NBC Watertown to help Small Businesses grow.  With Small businesses being the backbone of our community, we wanted to bring recognition to the owners that unlock in the morning, make all of the daily decisions and lock up at the end of the day.  All of this while holding responsibility to their loyal employees.  These folks are our friends, families and neighbors. They are just like you and I.  They are there before, during and after the sale.  To learn more about Hometown Local and how you can be a partner with NBC Watertown, contact us at 315-836-2023 or [email protected].
