According to the American Independent Business Alliance, there are many benefits to shopping locally. Owners of small businesses are more than twice as likely to donate to local causes and organizations. Other benefits include:

  • Helping to infuse more dollars into the local economy. Small business owners are three times more likely to buy needed supplies from other local retailers.
  • Creating vibrant communities. Independent retailers help to define our communities as well as attract visitors and new residents.
  • Creating local jobs and tax revenue.
