Why Shop Local?
Seems like a simple concept, right?
Shop local, small businesses to support your community, your friends, your neighbors.
But as the craze of holiday shopping sneaks up on us, those big box stores and online entities become more and more appealing.
Local artists, restaurants, spas and boutiques thrive on your commitment to keep your money in your community. Whether it’s a $10 sale or a $1,000 purchase, a small business owner will love and appreciate you.
Each small business has opened with the desire to offer the community something unique, a piece of themselves. The owners believe in their mission so passionately that they put every bit of their creativity and resources into building and sharing those specialty services or handcrafted goods.
It is magical to watch dreams become tangible, and the best way to support each other this holiday season is to shop local. But, besides the magic, here are a few more reasons why shopping local is beneficial to all of us –
*For every $100 you spend In a local small business, $68 stays in your community.
*You support schools, police & fire departments by keeping those taxes local.
*You raise your property values by sustaining vibrant neighborhoods.
*Better customer service with more personalized service.
*Local businesses are more connected to the community, therefore donate and support local charities and non-profits.
*Great for the environment with a much smaller carbon foot-print than big corporations.
The list can go on……
