Why Buy Local First?
Every dollar spent at a locally owned independent business generates two to four times more economic benefit in the community than a dollar spent at a globally owned business.
Local ownership minimizes the chance that a business will pull up stakes and move to another town.
Local business owners are generally more available to their customers to develop personal relationships, hear feedback and accommodate customer requests.
Local businesses help a community retain its unique character.
Spending money at locally-owned businesses decreases transportation costs, reduces the use of underpaid labor, and rewards those that are not shipping jobs overseas.
