Three Reasons to Shop Local and Make an Impact This Holiday Season
Dec 06, 2021
Our small choices have a big impact
Shopping with local businesses creates local jobs, supports nonprofits, and contributes to unique and thriving neighborhoods and communities.
Local businesses create thriving economies
Shopping at local businesses keeps more money in your community than shopping at big box stores or big online retailers. More than just small businesses benefit: small businesses provide communities with essential goods and services and local jobs, and they partner with other local businesses.
Shopping locally reduces your environmental impact
When you shop with local businesses, the goods and services require less fuel for transportation and less packaging than big box stores and mega-retailers.
