Why do people like shopping locally?


Keeping money in your community is essential for breeding success among local businesses and organizations. Small, locally-owned businesses account for 44% of the U.S. economy.

Sixty-one percent of people prefer to shop nearby because of the unique product selection. Local shops tend to offer more personalized products and services that are tailored to their local communities.* They often feature local or regional products you won't find in the superstores.

Not only do customers get exceptional goods that can't be found anywhere else, but shopping with local businesses also helps to give back to the local economy.

Shopping locally is a great way to give back to the local community indirectly as well. Did you know locally owned businesses donate 250% more than large corporations in supporting local charities and organizations? Wow! What an investment.

Ultimately, choosing to shop locally is a win-win situation that benefits everyone.

And you will really be appreciated! That's just the icing on the cake.
