Did you know that for every $100 spent in local small businesses, $68 returns back to the community? It’s true!
Did you also consider that communities flourish on the backs of small business, driving both the local and national economies by creating jobs, contributing revenue, and distributing wealth?
Historically, small businesses offer a billboard for local activities and events seeking to raise the funds necessary to thrive and survive.
So let’s support our small businesses. Shop local, meet your neighbors, and say thank you to the small business that supports your kid’s sports team, the school tricky tray, church spaghetti dinner, local food bank, volunteer fire department, and senior centers.
Explore the small businesses in your neighborhood and meet the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker. Meet the expert florists, designers, baristas, bartenders, restaurateurs, grocers, clothiers, cabinet makers, appliance sellers, furniture craftspeople and merchants, hairdressers and barbers, and pharmacists. Did I miss anyone?
Visit your neighborhood and explore, connect, and purchase.
It’s about keeping communities alive, neighbors supporting neighbors. Hope to see you out there Saturday!
