Shop Local - It Just Makes Sense!

Did you know that shopping close to home:

1 Keeps your dollars in your town!
Shopping local helps support and maintain your community, creates jobs, keeps the downtown healthy and builds a community that is worth living in.

2 Supports Local Non Profits!
When local business owners thrive, they are able to donate more to local charities and initiatives.

3 Creates Character & Prosperity!
A thriving business core increases the overall satisfaction of a town´s inhabitants and enhances the value of homes and property.

4 Reduces Environmental Impact!
Consuming less gas not only saves money but saves the environment as well!

5 Creates new jobs!
Most new jobs in a community are provided by local businesses.

6 Means You Matter More!
Isn´t it nice to be greeted by name when you enter a shop? Local business owners get to know you personally and are better able to respond to your individual wants and needs.

7 Is just a whole lot more fun!
In a small local shop, inventory is carefully chosen by the owner, you can find all sorts of unexpected treasures and meet friends and neighbours along the way.

8 Supports Diversity and Leads To More Consumer Choices!
The more dollars spent locally, the more choices become available to the consumer.

9 Saves you money!
If you add in travel, parking costs, fees to transport larger items home and the value of your time, shopping local just makes sense.
