Why do we love our
Small Businesses! 

Consider the facts!

  • For every dollar spent at a small business, 75 cents stays and circulates in the local economy. This compares to just 15 cents at a big box store or 5 cents for transactions on Amazon.com. 

  • Customer service in our small businesses is more personal, knowledgeable, and hands on.

  • Small business owners tend to "give back" more to their community either through sponsorships, in kind contributions, volunteerism, or public service. 

Here are more benefits to supporting our small shops and our local economy!
