All about Choices
Our small choices and personal actions make a difference to the lives of those around us. When more of us support any small local business vs. spending our money with any big franchise, brand store or nationally recognized service company – we are bettering our local economy and helping our neighbors.
Doesn’t that sound awesome?
When money stays local and profits are spent by our neighbors vs. the owners and share-holders of large corporations,this puts less stress on our social systems, but more importantly, we can visibly see the difference being made in someone’s life by choosing who to patron.
Here are four great reasons to shop and spend local whenever you can:
1. Local businesses owners – the good ones anyway- take pride and ownership in their work
2. Many chronically unemployed people are opening small businesses, improving local economies
3. We build relationships with small local business owners, creating rewarding & lasting experiences
4. Our local communities continue to have character, beauty and charm.
