Support Local!

“When you buy local you support schools, police and fire departments. When you shop small, the bulk of the money you spend and most of your taxes stay local — helping schools, paving streets, keeping you safe. According to the research firm Civic Economics, for every $100 you spend:  In a local small business, $68 stays in your community. At a local branch of a chain store, $43 remains. Online, virtually no money stays local” – USA Today

Shopping local makes your property value increase. Vibrant towns with strong shopping is considered an advantage when selling a home and the businesses help make your property more valuable.

When you shop local, you are supporting a dream. You’re helping a little boy or girl get a baseball jersey. You’re helping a mother put food on the table. Love where you live. Support Local.

 

Think. Buy. Stay. Local
