Spending at home more important than ever
Tunica Main Street is launching a “shop at home” campaign in an attempt to spark retail sales and generate tax revenue which has dropped off significantly in the wake of the Great Flood of 2011.
As is the case along most river counties, Tunica has suffered great financial losses since the rising waters of the Mississippi spread from its banks due to the spring rise and record rains in the Ohio River Valley. However, unlike most other Delta counties, Tunica’s heavy dependence on gaming revenue and the fact that all nine of the market’s casinos were closed for more than two weeks due to the near-record flooding has had an especially-adverse affect on Tunica’s economy and its local governments.
