Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
According to Civic Economics’ 2012 survey of local businesses, 48 cents of every dollar spent at a locally owned retail business goes back into the local community—more than three times the amount that local economies recover from chain retailers. Small, independent businesses also offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. Additionally, small local businesses have generated 65% of the country’s net new jobs over the past 17 years, according to the US Small Business Administration.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.
