Why Shop Local

Let us count some of the reasons for you!  When you shop locally, you…

  1. Reinvest in your own backyard. Research proves that when you buy from an independent, locally-owned business, more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses and service providers – it’s a great way to strengthen the local economy.
  2. Support small business employment. Small, local businesses are the largest employer locally and nationally – and provide most jobs to residents.
  3. Benefit from our expertise. We hire folks with a better understanding of the products we sell and the services we offer.  We’re professional, and we’re personal.
  4. Invest in entrepreneurship. And invest in our community.  Small, local businesses are owned by people who actually live here and are invested in the future of the community. 
  5. Help make the community unique, and a destination. Where we eat, shop, and recreate makes our community a home.  And small businesses are an important part of the character of our community.
  6. Further support the community by supporting local non-profits. On average, small business owners provide 250% more support to non-profits that large businesses.  
  7. Reinvest your taxes. When you spend locally, your sales taxes are reinvested where they belong – in your community! 
  8. Finally, when you shop locally, you help ensure the future of the community.
