Why shop local?

  • First, you are dealing with valuables. It is not a good idea to mail them around, even if a mail in offer may look enticing. National chains make decisions on a national level, and do not have flexibility to make exceptions. Our locally owned store has been around for 30 years, building trust and relationships in the community. Our mission is to treat you right, so you come back.
  • By doing business locally, you support yourself; studies have shown that when you give business to an independent, locally owned business, rather than a nationally owned business, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers, continuing to strengthen the economic base of your community.
  • Keep your community unique: where you shop, eat and have fun shapes and makes your community the way you like it.
  • Reduce environmental impact: locally owned businesses can make more local purchases requiring less transportation and generally set up shop in town or city centers as opposed to developing on the fringe. This generally means contributing less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss and pollution.
  • Create jobs: local businesses are the largest employer nationally and in our community, and provide the most jobs to residents.
  • Better service: local businesses hire people with a better understanding of the products they are selling, and take more time to get to know customers.
  • Encourage local growth: by supporting local businesses, you help ensure your community preserves their one-of-a-kind businesses and individual character.
