Why Buying Local Matters

So why does it matter if local businesses, artisans, and other entrepreneurs prosper?¬† You can buy just about anything online these days, the prices are usually cheaper, and you don’t even have to leave the house.

But that local pottery studio, insurance agency, or restaurant aren’t just businesses. They are our neighbors, friends, and family trying to create something that keeps our community alive and thriving. Without local business, there can be no local economy and no community.

The Numbers Don’t Lie

%

How much more local businesses contribute to non-profits and community causes than national and regional chain stores.

Numbers usually tell the truth, but rarely do they tell the whole story. Supporting local businesses affects the community in so many ways.

Build stronger, more connected communities.

The face-to-face encounters you enjoy at neighborhood businesses and the public areas around them create local relationships and develop community cohesiveness.

 

Shape the distinctive personality of your community.

Local businesses are a big part of what makes your community unique and give it that “hometown” feeling. Most communities have at least a handful of local stores that are one-of-a-kind.

 

Create a healthier environment for everyone.

Independent, neighborhood businesses are usually small, often consisting of 1-5 employees. They typically consume less space, carry more local and unique products, and create less traffic and air pollution.

Help employ locals and provide support for other local businesses.

Not only do local businesses employ more people per dollar of revenue, they also are customers of local printers, accountants, artisans, farms, attorneys, etc., expanding opportunities for other local businesses.

Enhance local democracy and community policy.

Local business means local roots. Local business people have a vested interest in supporting key development policies that positively shape the entire community.

The number of dollars that stays in the local economy when you spend $100. Compare to the $48 that stays local when the same amount is spent at a large chain store.

The number of extra dollars each family in the U.S would need to spend locally to create a 9.3 BILLION dollar increase in local economies.
