Tulsa shoppers should spend their money in Tulsa.
That's the message of a new city-sponsored website called (what else) Shop Tulsa. The idea behind the site is to help Tulsa shoppers find local merchants and vendors, which will help the city's sales tax revenues.
As most everyone in Tulsa knows by now, sales tax revenues in T-town have been down for more than a year, resulting in big budget cuts to city offices and departments.
We don't know if the new website will help, but it sounds like a promising idea. It's a new and evolving site, and city leaders say it will have more information about Tulsa shopping in the coming months.
The site is shoptulsa.org (it is not shoptulsa.com). A link is here.
