Why shop local? At times big box stores and corporations can seem impersonal. With that in mind I am sharing my 3 reasons to shop local. 1. The money you invest with a local business keeps that money in that area. We shop and dine here. Our taxes support schools and police departments. 2. You are helping a small business stay in business. Every customer matters. We know our customers. 3. We are living the American dream. Starting and running a business is a difficult task, but alas we are living in the land of opportunity. So with a heartfelt THANK YOU for buying local.
