WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO SHOP LOCAL?

1. Personalized Service
A small business owner is going to go the extra mile to make you happy. Local businesses are owned by your neighbors and friends, they care about you and are invested in the well-being of your community and its future.

 

2. One-of-a-Kind Products
Small businesses carry unique products and services that you won’t find anywhere else. When you shop at a chain any product you buy, hundreds of others will have.

3. Support the Arts
Small businesses support creativity! Oftentimes small businesses and boutiques sell and display art from local artists. These are one of a kind pieces you can’t find anywhere else.

4. Enhances the Local Economy
Small businesses support your local economy and the money you spend at a local business stays within your town and community, thus improving its future.

 

5. Good for your Health
Supporting small businesses is good for your health for two reasons. One, it gets you out of the house. Take a walk to the local farmer’s market and buy some fresh produce for dinner, or buy a brand new candle from a small boutique in your town center. Two, when you buy local, you have easy access to fresh food that is chemical and pesticide free.
