Unique Businesses Create Character and Prosperity

When you purchase locally, you are supporting your 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.         Several 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.

Local business owners and employees often possess a level of expertise     and a passion for the products they sell that is unmatched by employees    and managers of national chains. They also tend to have a greater         interest in getting to know their customers—who are, after all, also            their neighbors. Simply put, local owners and employees take a             special pride in their trade.
