    More and more, people are being encouraged to shop locally. This movement isn’t just a fad, and it has benefits that reach beyond keeping small mom and pop retailers afloat in a difficult economy. Here are just a few reasons why it’s important to shop–and do business–local whenever possible.


    • Shopping local stimulates the local economy. 
    • It creates local jobs. 
    • Shopping local results in better consumer choices. 
    • Local businesses are greener
    • Local non-profits get more support.
    • Shopping local directly benefits you

    You don’t have to shop local every time to make an impact. Getting in the mindset of shopping and doing business locally first is all it takes to start improving our local community.
