Why Shop Small Local Businesses

We have the opportunity to talk to small local business owners all the time, and it seems many of them are in crisis mode.  From the corner convenience market to the print shop to clothing shops to local restaurants we hear the same thing: business is down, they’re not sure why, they’re doing everything they can and they won’t survive unless it picks up.

The solution is simple – make a concerted effort to shop small and shop local whenever possible.  We came across this unnamed quote and it struck close to home… “When you buy from a small business you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home.  You are helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his team jersey, a mom put food on the table, a dad pay a mortgage or a student go to college.”
