It’s very simple, really.
(Spend $100 with your local business and $73 stays in the community while only $43 stays with a non-local business. Shop online with a non-local business and $0 stays in the community.)
Local businesses provide a service directly to our community. When you shop local, whether it’s your morning coffee stop, a bookstore, or a baby item (yay Baby Time!) more of your dollar stays here! You are directly helping your schools, local infrastructure, families and other local businesses. I love being able to offer products from other work at home moms too, that helps out community two-fold!
Use your dollar to change the world, one little shop like mine at a time.
