TOP 10 REASONS TO SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESS
Keep Money in Our Neighborhood
For every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures. These dollars continue to flow through our community. If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays here. Spend it online and nothing comes home. (Source – The 3/50 Project)
Locally Owned Businesses Support Community Groups
Non-profit organizations receive an average of 350% more support from local business owners than they do from non-locally owned businesses.
Create Jobs in Our Community
Small local businesses are the largest employer nationally and owned businesses are far less likely to pull up stakes and move operations to another city or country, taking their jobs with them.
Get Better Service
In a local business, you know the person behind the counter, and they know you. They have a deep understanding of the products they are selling, and they take time to serve their customers.
Community Well Being
Locally owned businesses build strong neighborhoods by sustaining communities, linking neighbors, and contributing to more local causes.
Keep Our Community Unique
Where we shop, eat, and go for entertainment helps make our community home. Our one-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of our community.
Investment in the Community
Local business owners are people who live here, work here, and are invested in the community with their time and energy as well as their dollars.
Enjoy Selections Geared to Local Taste and Needs
Local businesses have a wider array of uniquely focused products because they buy and sell based on what they know local customers want and need, creating more relevant choices.
Local Decision Making
Local ownership means that important decisions are made locally by people who live in our community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions.
Creativity and entrepreneurship are what fuels America’s economic innovation and prosperity. The success of locally owned, independent businesses provides real-life examples to our young people, proving that they can stay in our area and prosper through their own hard work and ingenuity.
