Put Your Money Where Your Heart Is: Shop Local

Updated: Nov 24, 2023

Small Business Saturday is an annual event that takes place on the Saturday after Thanksgiving which encourages shoppers to put their money where their heart is by supporting local businesses.

Why should you shop local this Saturday, November 25 and throughout the holiday season? Here are just a few reasons:

1. Boosts the local economy

By shopping at local businesses, you are contributing to the local economy. The money you spend stays within the community and supports local jobs, which helps to strengthen the local economy.

2. Encourages unique products

Local businesses often offer unique and one-of-a-kind products that you cannot find at big chain stores. By shopping local, you are supporting the creativity and innovation of local entrepreneurs.

3. Creates a sense of community

Shopping at local businesses can create a sense of community and connection. You can meet the business owners and employees and build relationships with them. This also helps to create a vibrant and diverse community.

4. Reduces environmental impact

Shopping local reduces the environmental impact of transporting goods. Local businesses often source many of their products locally, which reduces the need for long-distance transportation and reduces the carbon footprint.

5. Personalized customer service

Local businesses provide personalized customer service, as they value their customers and want to build long-term relationships. They are also more likely to have a deep understanding of their products and can provide expert advice and recommendations.
