3 Reasons + Places to Shop Local
We all like to shop nearby; it’s convenient and quick.
The corporate grocery store or the mega Walmart up the road is most of our go-to locations. But what if we could support our local community, have something unique and get better service all at the same time? What are the benefits of shopping local?
Independent businesses employ local people to fill positions; you could be giving a job to your neighbor or a friend! Usually, they employ more people directly per dollar of revenue, while buying needs from other locally owned shops!
Reduce Environmental Impact
Community serving businesses often buy more local, are located near residents contributing to less traffic and air pollution! Yay for clean air!
Keep Community Unique
The more variety of local businesses means a bigger variety of products, giving us all more choices! The wider collection brings a diversity of businesses to our communities. The more unique businesses in our home cities create these one-of-a-kind communities!
