Make a Difference

Pick 3. Spend 50.
What 3 independently owned businesses would you really miss if they disappeared? Stop in. Say Hello. Pick up something that brings a smile. Your purchases are what keeps these businesses around.
If half the population spent $50 in locally owned independent businesses, it would generate more than 46.2 billion dollars in revenue. Imagine the impact if 3/4 of the employed population did that!
For every $100 spent in locally owned independent businesses, $68 is returned to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures. If you spend that in national chain, only $43 is stays here.
It just takes you and me to make it happen. Click on the image above for more information on this national movement to Think Local.
