Communities that preserve their local businesses and distinctive character have many economic advantages. Not only does supporting these businesses help create more jobs in your community, it also builds even stronger communities by linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships. Local Businesses recycle a much larger share of their revenue back into the local community compared to chain stores. Having more of these smaller businesses helps out everyone in the long run because they’re the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over a long period of time. Last but not least, small businesses in a local community help embrace what makes everyone unique. So go out today and help support the small businesses in your town!
