When you shop local more money returns to your local economy than if you spend that same dollar at a chain store.
Even with a smaller budget, you can give more this holiday season. How? By shopping local. Join the Shop Indie Local movement! We’re purchasing more of our holiday gifts and celebration needs from our friends and neighbors — locally owned business owners. Please join us!
Why Shop Indie Local?
When you spend your dollars at locally owned businesses more money returns to our local economy than if you spend that same dollar at a chain store. That dollar recirculates through your economy, generating ripple effects that strengthen jobs, charitable contributions and community prosperity.
Shop Indie Local and Give More (Fill in the Blank)
Think about the people you love. Instead of stuff, what do you truly want to give them? Perhaps it’s more hope, inspiration or connection. Now, consider each person, place and thing that plays a part in growing, making and getting that gift to your loved one. When you Shop Indie Local, you give more to everyone.
For example, I want to give more hope to a dear friend. I find a one-of-a-kind handmade lamp, one that I know will make my friend’s day a bit brighter. The artist who made the lamp, closed out from their regular holiday events, feels a bit more hope that they’ll make it through 2020 and my friend feels more hope every time she clicks the lamp’s switch on. What do you want to give more of this year?
