How shopping locally benefits both you & your community

It’s that time when everyone is gearing up for the Holidays, and shopping lists seem a mile long! While large corporations run huge sales on Black Friday, we prefer to stick to Small Business Saturday and shop locally. Did you know that shopping locally not only benefits your community, but it also benefits YOU!?

Here are our top reasons for shopping locally, even when it’s not Small Business Saturday…

  1. Shopping locally improves the local economy. When you shop at a locally owned business, the money that you spend is going into the pocket of a fellow neighbor in your community. Small business owners then spend that money at businesses in the community and are more prone to spend their dime to support other local businesses.
  2. Shopping locally invests in a personal connection with the business and its employees. The personal level of service you receive when shopping locally is far different than that of a corporation. A small business gives room for building relationships with a customer on a personal level. Do you frequent our shop? We will greet you by name. Do you order every September for your loved one’s birthday? We know the exact style and price point you are looking for. A more personal experience always makes a world of difference when shopping.
  3. Shopping locally highlights exceptional customer service. When employees and business owners are part of a community and spend time building relationships with customers, customer service goes from good to exceptional. Because we care for our customers on a deeper level than just trying to get sales, we will go the extra mile to make things happen for you. Our goal is to provide you with unparalleled customer service, and, with being a small business, we can do just that.
  4. Shopping locally keeps your community unique. A locally owned, small business brings a change of pace to your community. Instead of chain restaurants and businesses on every corner, a small businesses brings a breath of fresh air to what could be a community overly saturated with corporate businesses.

We appreciate your business and go above and beyond to ensure that you have an incredible shopping experience. We strive to make our customers feel like family. We are so very grateful for you!
