5 Reasons to Shop Local

    1. Local Pride: When you shop at a local business, the money your spend goes back into your community making it an even better place to be.  The small business owner is more likely to support local non-profits and events in your community that make it a better place. Locally-owned businesses generate a premium in enhanced economic impact to the community. The small business owners lives in your community so there is a vested interest in making it better.
    2. Product Knowledge: Local businesses have less merchandise than big boxed stores so they have a better knowledge base about what they are selling.  The inventory has been carefully picked which means the owners have researched all the options and landed on the ones they carry because they reflect the quality they believe is the best for the price point. 
    3. Diverse Inventory: Small Businesses work hard to find special items you can't find chain stores.  If you are looking for a unique gift or something special, you are more likely to find it in a small specialty store that has handpicked the items they carry based on their quality and distinctiveness.
    4. Find what you want, not what someone else wants you to buy: Local businesses also have an ear to the ground with their customers, know what they want to buy, and carry those products. Small business owners are also willing to go the extra mile to find you what you are looking for.
    5. Community Uniqueness: Locally-owned businesses add to each community making that community distinctive.  Distinctive communities are fun to live in and memorable to visit.  These are some of the major factors that drive economic growth in a community.  People want to be in communities that offer them a good quality of life.  It is a great economic cycle.
