Shop Local, Shop Small
When local businesses and companies think of joining their local Chamber the main reason is often networking. Truthfully, there are many more opportunities and programs besides networking. So, this month, we dive into our Shop Local, Shop Small campaign and explore this benefit of being a member at your local chamber.
So much good can happen when communities choose to shop local and shop small. As you begin to shop for the holidays, venture away from your online norm to discover something new, unique, local.
Know when shopping local, you’re making an impact on our schools, public services like safety and fire protection,roads and much more. So, before making that easy purchase,remember, money spent here, stays here. This investmentrecirculates again and again in our community, to local nonprofits,accountants, print shops, restaurants, and more!
While we are often drawn to the lowest prices, we overlook the convenience, customer service and goods provided by our neighbors. We challenge our members and communities to think long term. Help us keep our local economy strong and invest in main street, shop small and shop local. Utilize our area businesses and services whenever you can. Thank you for continuing to help our communities grow!
