The Impact of Supporting Local

With the Holidays fast approaching people will be traveling more, throwing parties with friends and family, purchasing and giving gifts, and decorating for the season with festive garlands, wreaths, lights, and tinsel. In a nutshell? They’ll be spending money! It is always important to support the community you live, work, and play in, but it’s apparent to all of us that now, more than ever, it is so vital to support our local businesses and do all we can to keep the cheer here.

The Rewards of Supporting Local
Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and the life of our community. They provide jobs, support our local organizations and schools, and contribute to the economic growth of this region.

When you shop and support local businesses you are making a personal investment in your neighborhood. In fact, for every $100 spent, roughly $65 to $75 of it returns to local activity. You are helping to shape your community's character and personality while adding to its prosperity.

When you support local, non-profits receive more support. Non-profits receive a large amount of support from local business owners. In fact, they often receive up to 300% more money from local shops than non-locally owned businesses.

Shopping local also puts taxes to good use! In addition to generating more tax revenue per sales dollar, the taxes paid by locally-owned businesses are widely used to support schools, parks, roads, and other local programs that benefit your friends, family, and community.
