Why Shop Local?


*  When you shop at locally owned businesses, more money is kept in the community: 
    Local business owners usually purchase from other local businesses, providers, wages, taxes, community        
donations, etc.)  

*  Local Business Owners are more invested in the future of the community and provide job growth.

*  Better Customer Service:  Local businesses are more likely to go out of their way to provide with you a goods   or services than a larger, retail chain.


*  Preserve the Community: Keeping Savannah a charming, one-of-a-kind city and not  “Anywhere, USA.”

*  Every dollar you spend makes a difference:  By shopping locally, you impact the cultural vitality of the  
   community and help build a stronger local economy.
 
 
“Going local does not mean walling off the outside world.  It means Nurturing Locally Owned Business which use Local Resources Sustainably, Employ Local Workers at decent wages and serve primarily Local Consumers.  It means become more Self-Sufficient and Less Dependent on imports.  Control moves from the boardrooms of Distant Corporations and Back in the Community Where it Belongs."
