WHY THINK LOCAL

1.

Stimulate Local
Economy


More money is kept in the community because locally-owned businesses often purchase from other local businesses

Small local businesses are the largest employers nationally

2.

Support Local
Community Groups


Local business owners donate more to local charities and community groups than non-local owners

3.

Unique Businesses
Create Character


Local Businesses give a community its flavour

Meet the needs of their Local Customers that national brands can't

4.

Reduce Environmental
Impact


Local businesses require far less infrastructure and more efficiently utilize public services relative to chain stores

The more jobs you have in your local community the less people are going to have to commute which means more time and less traffic and pollution

5.

Reinvest Back Into
Local Community


Locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share of their revenue back into the local economy, enriching the whole community

More is invested in the community’s welfare and future
