“Screw My Community!”

Who says that?

Nobody, I hope!

 

But, how many people stop to consider the effects of their shopping habits on their community?

 

Thriving Local Businesses = Thriving Communities

 

Buy from a local business in your community and more of your hard-earned money remains in your community in the form of:

 

  • Local jobs! Buy from local businesses and your community benefits from an increase in employment options
  • Rent paid by that business
  • Utilities paid by that business
  • Business services (accounting, printing, etc.) paid by that business
  • Spending at local grocery stores, and restaurants for food, etc.

 

Who cares?

You should.

 

Do you:

  • Own a home?
  • Rent an apartment?
  • Have children?
  • Own a business?

 

Everything is better when the local community where you own that home, rent that apartment, raise your children, or operate your business is a thriving community.

 

Spread the word!
