Top Reasons to Shop Locally

  • You keep dollars in our economy. For every $100 you spend at one of our local businesses, $68 will stay in the community.

  • You help the environment. Buying from a local business conserves fuel.

  • You nurture community. Studies have shown that local businesses donate to community causes at more than twice the rate of chains.
