1) Buy Local – Support yourself
Studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally-owned business, rather than a nationally-owned businesses, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses and service providers – continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community.
2) Support Community Groups
Non-profit organizations receive on average 250% more support from smaller business owners than they do from large businesses.
3) Keep our Community Unique
Where we shop, where we eat and have fun — all of it makes our community home. Our one-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of this place. Our tourism businesses also benefit.
4) Reduce Environmental Impact
Locally owned businesses can make more local purchases requiring less transportation, and generally set up shop in town or city centers as opposed to developing on the fringe. This generally means contributing less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss, and pollution.
5) Create jobs
Small businesses are the largest employer nationally. By supporting our local businesses you are providing opportunities for further employment in the region.
6) Get Better Service
Local businesses often hire people with a better understanding of the products they are selling and take more time to get to know customers.
7) 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 future.
8) Buy What You Want, Not What Someone Wants You To Buy
A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term. A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based not on a national sales plan but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers guarantees a much broader range of product choices.
