Think. Shop. Buy LOCAL
When you spend your dollars at an independant local business, it keeps more money in our hometown to support our community's schools, social services, public library, and local non-profits. Studies show that locally owned businesses return about 80% of each dollar spent at local businesses will return up to 5 times that amount within the community through taxes , employee wages, and purchaese of supplies and services from other independant businesses. By supporting local businesses, it creates more jobs, a healthier economy and invites other businesses to come to our community. It's truly a win-win for all of us.
