There are a great number of reasons why you should choose to shop local and spend money within your own community. Case studies have shown that for every dollar spent locally, at least 30% of that dollar is injected back into the community. This translates into more jobs, higher property values, lower residential taxes, a more affluent community and a reduction in the impact to the environment. We encourage you to help us build a stronger and more vibrant community. Support our community businesses and shop local.
