Money spent here also recirculates into our community. Think of the businesses that sponsor and support local sports teams, the t-ball uniforms, the local golf tournament, and the local non-profit fundraiser. We expand our community opportunities when we shop local.

We are often drawn to the lowest price, but we overlook the convenience and customer service provided by our neighbors, our local businesses. Think long hobsonterm when you shop and keep our local economy, our community strong by utilizing the services and products found locally!

With local businesses, the more small business diversity we have, the lower our taxes! Our variety of small businesses cater to the needs of individual customers. Local small businesses also employ our neighbors, friends and family, and they too are customers of other small businesses, the local printer, accountant, farmer and more.
