Why Shop Local?
When you shop local, you’re making a personal investment in your community. For every $100 spent, $68 is returned to your community. Money is kept in the community because locally-owned businesses often make purchases from other locally-owned businesses. Because local businesses make more local purchases, less transportation is required and this leads to less pollution and resource depletion. You might not realize it, but when you support local you’re helping to stimulate your local economy and in turn, helping to nurture your community’s unique charm and character. You help to create more jobs when you shop local. Local business owners give more support and donations to community associations. So ask yourself, is your community worth investing in? The answer is always YES! Love where you live. Shop Local!
