Top 3 benefits
of supporting local businesses
Keep money in the local economy & your wallet
Studies have shown that up to four times more money stays in the local economy when those dollars are spent with local businesses than with national.
Support the community through local business
The Institute for Local Self-Reliance has found that local businesses tend to give back to their community more through charitable giving than national chain stores. When local businesses are thriving, everyone wins. So when you buy local, you’re helping to create healthier and happier communities.
Create jobs in our community & state
When you support local businesses, you’re creating demand for high quality and diverse jobs across the state. Local businesses in turn hire fellow local businesses in the community for products and services that they need to fulfill your orders and contracts. This “multiplier effect” creates and supports jobs throughout the state. Plus, think about the customer’s service from a local business!
