The Holiday season is here! During the biggest shopping season of the year, it’s important to consider why you should choose to shop at small businesses and support your local communities.
Here are six reasons to shop small –
- Better Shopping Experience:
Small business owners strive to survive and one of the biggest advantages they have over large retailers is the ability to provide more personable, hands-on, and memorable service.
- Benefits Communities and Environments:
Money spent within small businesses create local jobs and contribute to paying local taxes.
Shopping a big brand will just lead you to inventory you can find at a thousand other stores with little variation, whereas shopping small offers more unique finds.
- Ethical Choice:
Many small businesses have faced difficult times and unlike big retailers its not as easy for them to bounce back. Helping to shop their services can make the difference to them and their community.
- Public Benefits:
Local stores make efficient use of public services and areas compared to giant retailers.
Local businesses tend to support nonprofits and other charities directly that you may also have an interest in.
