Why Shop Local?
When it is time to make a purchase or use a service, do you shop local? Are you familiar with the importance of supporting local businesses? Many people are under-informed about the important values that local businesses provide for you as an individual as well as for the community.
Take a look at these 5 Reasons why to Shop Local:
1. Community Well-Being
Locally owned businesses build strong neighborhoods by supporting communities, joining neighbors, and by contributing more to local organizations and charities.
2. Keeping Money in the Local Community
Money spent in local businesses has three times the impact on your community as dollars spent at national chains. Smaller businesses support Non-profit organizations by an average of 250% more than large businesses.
When we choose to shop local we are helping create more jobs in the local community.
4. Keep the Community Unique
When people go on trips they are often looking for shops that contain “local products” and want something unique. This also helps tourism!
5. One on One Service
When shopping local, employees are often more friendly and they take the time to get to know their customers. They also spend time helping customers get exactly what they are looking for.
By shopping local you are not only helping your community, your supporting our country as well. Creative Printing is a locally owned business in Downtown Panama City. When you come into Creative our friendly staff can discuss your design and create exactly what you are looking for. When you shop online, you don’t get that good “ole fashioned” customer service. Custom designs are always much more fun and you get exactly what you had in mind.
So come on Downtown and support the local businesses!
