Locally owned businesses build strong communities
Keeping Dollars in the Local Economy
Compared to chain stores, locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share of their revenue back into the local economy, enriching the whole community. In fact, $68 of every $100 spent stays in the local community vs. $43 with a larger retailer.
Entrepreneurship fuels America’s economic innovation and prosperity, and serves as a key means for families to move out of low-wage jobs and into the middle class.
A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based, not on a national sales plan, but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, guarantees a much broader range of product choices.
There is no other type of establishment that will offer better, more personal service. Independent businesses care about getting to know their customers.
Small businesses make our City Unique
One-of-a-kind shops can attract tourists to our City, helping to boost the local economy.
