When you shop locally you are reinvesting in your community. You may not realize it, but most of the businesses in your area are independently owned and operated by people just like you. They pay taxes in your community, they employ local people, they support local sports teams and organizations and they make up the fabric of where we live. Small businesses are the heartbeat of our communities. In addition to that, here are some other great reasons to shop local.
Have a question before purchasing, or need advice? Call a local business and speak to a real person.
No more packaging, printing labels, lining up at the post office and mailing your returns. Simply contact your local business and find out their return policy – then drop off the item for refund or exchange.
Easy pick up or local delivery
It’s way more convenient and far better for the environment.
Locally owned and operated
These businesses are registered right here in your community, and they’re paying local taxes which help support YOUR neighbourhood. Big box stores are often registered in foreign countries where they pay little to no tax at all.
You chose to live in the community you’re in for a reason. By shopping local, you’re supporting your local economy and reinvesting in the place you call home.
