We encourage you to spend your money with local businesses during the holiday season in an effort to help your neighborhood businesses remain viable. There are good reasons to keep dollars local.
As customers, we are about to collectively spend a large portion of our annual shopping budget between now and Dec 31. If you join us in shifting those dollars to locally-owned, independent businesses, we’ll all help generate 2-3 times as much economic activity in our community than if we had spent our money at a national chain.
Supporting local businesses allows them to support local charitable causes which need increased support during this holiday season. This may not be at the front of your mind when you are ticking off your Christmas list, but know there is a huge benefit to your community when you spend your money at local businesses.
