Why Shop Local

Think:

• Your local businesses give back more to the community.
• More of your dollars stay in the community.
• More jobs stay in the community.

Shop:

• You can find anything you need locally.
• You develop relationships locally.
• You can find affordable prices in our community.

Buy:

• For every $1 spent at local businesses, 45¢ is reinvested locally. Non-local purchases keep, at most, 15¢ in your local community.
• Local businesses value, respect and appreciate your patronage.
• More tax dollars go to schools and roads in your community.
