Here’s what happens when you “shop local.”

  1. More of your money will be kept in your local economy
    For every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community. What happens when you spend that same $100 at a national chain? Only $43 stays in the community.*
  2. You embrace what makes your community unique
    You wouldn’t want your house to look like everyone else’s in the U.S. So why would you want your community to look that way?
  3. You create local jobs
    Local businesses are better at creating higher-paying jobs for your neighbors. When you shop locally, you help create jobs for teachers, firemen, police officers, and many other essential professions.
  4. You help the environment
    Buying from a locally owned business conserves energy and resources in the form of less fuel for transportation and less packaging.
  5. You nurture community
    Local business owners know you, and you know them. Studies have shown that local businesses donate to community causes at more than twice the rate of chains.
  6. You conserve your tax dollars
    Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money available to beautify your community. Also, spending locally instead of online ensures that your sales taxes are reinvested where they belong— in your community!
  7. You create more choices
    Locally owned businesses pick the items and products they sell based on what they know you like and want. Local businesses carry a wid­er array of unique products because they buy for their own individual markets.
  8. You benefit from their expertise
    You are their friends and neighbors, and locally owned businesses have a vested interest in knowing how to serve you. They’re passionate about what they do. Why not take advantage of it?
  9. You invest in entrepreneurship
    Creativity and entrepreneurship are what the American economy is founded upon. Nurturing local business ensures a strong community.
  10. You make your community a destination
    The more interesting and unique your community is, the more it will attract new neighbors, visitors, guests and customers. This benefits everyone!
