|10 Reasons to shop local:
1. Local Economic Stimulus.
When you purchase at locally owned businesses rather than nationally owned, more money is kept in the community because locally-owned
businesses often purchase from other local businesses, service providers and farms. Purchasing local helps grow other businesses as well as the
local tax base.
2. Non Profits Receive Greater Support.
Local business owners donate more to local charities than non-local owners.
3. Unique Businesses Create Character & Prosperity
The unique character of your local community is defined in large part by the business that reside there, and that plays a big factor in your overall
satisfaction with where you live and the value of you home and property.
4. Environmental Impact Is Reduced.
Small local business usually set up shop in the town/village center, providing a centralized variety that is much friendlier to a community's walk score
than out of town shopping malls. This generally means contributing less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss and pollution.
5. Most New Jobs Are Provided By Local Businesses.
Small local businesses are the largest employers nationally. Plus the more jobs you have in your local community the less people are going to have to
commute which means more time and less traffic and pollution.
6. Customer Service Is Better.
Local businesses often hire people with more specific product expertise for better customer service. You are also going to see these people around
town and they are less likely to blow you off or be rude becauses they have to face you day after day.
7. Local Business Owners Invest In Community.
Local businesses are owned by people who live in this community, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in the community's welfare and
8. Public Benefits Far Outweigh Public Costs.
Local businesses require comparatively little infrastructure and more efficiently utilize public services relative to chain stores.
9. Competition And Diversity Leads To More Consumer Choices.
A marketplace of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term.
10. You Matter More
|There are many locally owned businesses out there, many of which most of us don't know exist. We wonder, how can
the economy change if we do nothing?? We're on a mission to help make a difference, one step at a time!! We'd like
to help make people aware of the impact that local shopping/eating can have. We the people are stronger than most
think and we need to get that back!
