I’d like to ask the question “why shop from local small businesses?” Let’s face it, we live in a worldwide economy. Think of your last 10 purchases. I’d venture to say that many of the items were produced outside of your local community (probably even in a different nation). Things are so easily available now, and we are so connected with other parts of the world that we do not hesitate about where the products we purchase come from, and how our purchases may effect our regional communities. Have you ever considered how the growth of an international economy may effect your local economy?
The # 1 reason to go shopping in your local area is to help keep dollars in the local economy. It is actually simple. Locally owned businesses definitely recycle a bigger share of their profits back into the local economy, particularly when you compare them to the big chain establishments.
