Let’s stand together and show support for our communities by buying from local businesses.

The combination of businesses being required to temporarily shut down and people staying home has caused small local businesses to suffer. Some of this will be temporary, but some business owners will be forced to shut down for good.

Local business is essential for our economy. They bring growth and innovation to our communities. They provide employment and create entrepreneurship opportunities and support the local economies, communities and neighborhoods.

Studies show that when you buy from an independent, locally owned business, rather than a nationally owned business, a significantly greater portion of your money is then used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers, and farms — further strengthening the economic base of our whole community.

In recent decades, policy across the country has privileged the biggest corporations. Yet a growing body of research is proving something that many people already know: small-scale, locally owned businesses create communities that are more prosperous, entrepreneurial, connected, and generally better off across a wide range of metrics.

  • It shows you care about your local community
  • It shows respect to the business owners
  • You’re helping bring character to the commercial world
  • You’ll get unique products
  • They always want the best final result, not your money
  • You are giving people jobs

Other ways to support local businesses

When it comes to supporting a local business, you can do a lot of good even if you don’t want to shop there for whatever reason. Follow them on social media and make sure you share their deals or sales or announcements so that you can network and help them get a wider net for people who will be interested in shopping there.

Most are feeling a financial strain right now, and are worried about the future. But if you need to buy something, try your local store first.
