Why Supporting Local Businesses Matters
We say, “Shop local!” a lot, but what exactly does that mean? It can be a socially ambiguous term, I mean, Wal*Mart is local, right?
What we are really saying, is we want you to be supporting local businesses that are independently owned by people in your community. We want you to go to the grocery store owned by the deacon at your church.
When you invest in your community, you invest in your family and your future. Large, impersonal corporations perpetuate income inequality and take large percentages of their income out of the community they feed off of.
