Everyone can make a difference, it doesn't matter if you are a large institution, a small enterprise, or an individual. Changing your spending habits can make a big difference in your local community!
Shopping at a national chain means the majority of your money leaves the community and goes to wealthy investors.
Shopping local means more capital circulating locally.
More capital creates opportunities for local businesses to flourish, create more jobs and have a stronger economy.
When you support local BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color)-Owned, Women-Owned, and Immigrant-Owned businesses, we can ensure that those generally excluded from economic growth are included in the prosperity of our community.
Watch these videos to learn even more about the power of supporting locally-owned businesses!
