Shop Local

Posted on July 10th, 2013 in category "Tips"

ShopLocalJulyShop local. We hear that term used often, but what does it really mean for you and your community? As it turns out, more than you might think. Consider some of these statics from Independent Retailer Month’s website:

  • Only 6 cents of every dollar spent with a big box retailer stays in the community. For a chain store its 20 cents of every dollar, but every dollar spent with an independent (Indie) retailer keeps 60 cents circulating in the community.
  • When you shop locally-owned businesses, money will stay in the community 3 times longer! A dollar spent at a locally owned store is usually spent 6 to 15 times before it leaves the community. When you spend $1 at a national chain store, 80% of the money leaves town immediately.
  • For every $100 in consumer spending with a local firm, $68 remains in the local economy. That same $100 spent with a chain results in only $43 remaining in the local community; a difference of $25 per $100!
  • For every square foot occupied by a local firm, the impact on the local economy is $179. Yet that same square foot occupied by a chain firm results in a local impact of only $105; a difference of $74 per square foot!
  • Local businesses tend to give more to community causes and support local media. Many of the non-profit organizations that serve our communities are supported largely by local businesses, and our local radio stations, newspapers, and television stations are kept alive by local business advertisements.

The month of July is national shop local retailer’s month!
