Has anyone thanked you for the difference you make?
You ARE making a difference in your
community. You're shopping at an independent,
Did you know:
- For every $100 spent in locally-owned,
independent businesses, $73 is returned to
the local economy. (National chains
only return $43 locally.)
- Locally-owned businesses create more
- Local ownership ensures that important
decisions are made locally by people who
live in the community and who feel the
impact of their decisions.
- In an increasingly homogenized world,
independent businesses build local
character, and cater to the needs of local
people rather than a national sales plan.
- A marketplace of many small businesses is
the best way to ensure innovation and low
prices in the long run.
So THANK YOU!!
And, please, spread the word!
