Why Shop Local?
  • Stimulate local economies: Big box stores take the revenue from your shopping out of the community (after salaries and expenses are paid, of course). Small, local businesses, on the other hand, put a much larger share of their revenue back into the local economy. One study found that for every $100 spent, locally-owned businesses keep $68 in the community, while non-locally owned businesses keep only $43 in the local economy.
  • Employ more people: Of the 120.6 million non-farm jobs in the American private sector in 2007, 59.9 million were provided by small businesses. Between the years of 1993 and 2009, small firms added 65% of all net new jobs in America – more than 9.8 million.
  • Local traditions and culture: When you buy handmade items made locally, you’ll often find a much deeper level of tradition and culture than you would if you shopped at big box stores. This increased variety and character enhances the enjoyment of things like traditional fashion and helps to keep cultures alive.
  • More innovation, resource efficiency: When tens of thousands of small businesses compete for your business rather than one or two giant businesses, they’re encouraged to innovate to provide better products and services.
  • Community savings, less crime: Engaged, vibrant communities filled with small business owners who care about their community produce neighborhoods with less crime, higher public health quality, improved educational opportunities, and lower costs for government.
  • Lower greenhouse gas emissions: Of course, local businesses are better for the planet, too! Not only do small, local businesses source their products and services locally thereby lowering their operational carbon footprint, when you buy from them, you lower your carbon footprint for shopping, too.
