Supporting Local Helps YOUR Community

September 12, 2023

Why should you support local businesses? By supporting local businesses, you’re supporting yourself and your loved ones.

Sales tax dollars fund your community, providing things such as police protection, trash collection, and other services. Think about this for a moment…what if your community didn’t have a fire department? What if your trash wasn’t picked up each week? It’s easy to take these services for granted.

Another reason to support local businesses is that you can continue to enjoy the special shops, restaurants, and service-based companies that make your community unique.

Your community is one-of-a-kind. Your community is home.

Just the facts, please

We’ve enjoyed sharing the facts with you, so here are a few more. Numbers can help put things in perspective.

  • As mentioned in another blog, local businesses generate 70% more local economic activity than big box retail.
  • Forty percent of small businesses are in low-income communities. This means that putting money towards these businesses will help improve community stability and the overall economy.


Live Local. Encourage friends and family to do the same.
