According to Civil Economics: Andersonville Study of Retail Economics – for every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community. There are plenty of reasons to shop local:
• You create local jobs
• You invest in and reward entrepreneurship
• You build relationships with your neighbors
• Sales taxes collected from your purchases stay in the community
• You minimize economic impact by consuming less fuel and packaging
The money you spend at local businesses has a BIG impact. Everyone benefits—from your neighbors who own and operate local businesses to the municipalities who maintain your roads and fund the school system. Everyone benefits, including you! When you shop local you help create a healthier economy and a happier community.
