Why is supporting local so important?
The strength and stability of the local economy rely on a strong business base, and the community relies on support from local entrepreneurs to help the municipality grow. Here are some reasons why it’s important for residents to support local:
- Local businesses are closely tied to the community and dollars spent on them have a direct effect on spending habits.
- Small businesses are some of the largest employers in the community. Supporting them can help to keep employment levels stable and increase the opportunity for other entrepreneurs.
- Help a local business to reach a wider audience and expand its clientele by posting a review. Don’t keep your favourite store a secret, share it with everyone!
- With nearly 70 per cent of the country working for an entrepreneur, supporting local businesses can help to spread economic prosperity further into a community. These small businesses help to support your family, friends, and neighbours; make sure to show your support for them.
- Typically, local businesses source their items in the area they live, giving them a smaller carbon footprint. Local creations go a long way in one-of-a-kind gifts instead of something mass-produced!
- Vibrant small businesses can help to attract new investment and increase local tax revenue which helps to build a stronger community.
- Supporting local means supporting the people in your life. Local businesses rely on us to help them succeed. With so much of the community relying on entrepreneurs, make the decision to support local.
