BE A LOCAL
Each dollar you spend at independent businesses returns 3 times more money to your local economy than one spent at a chain -- a benefit we all can bank on.
Independent businesses help give your community its distinct personality.
Community-serving businesses are people-sized. They typically consume less land, carry more locally-made products, locate closer to residents and create less traffic and air pollution.
Neighborhood--scale businesses that you may have the casual encounter with, as well as the public spaces you enjoy, build relationships and community cohesiveness. They're the ultimate social networking sites!
