5 Reasons to Shop ‘Mom & Pop’ and Other Local, Family-Owned Businesses

When you shop with local, family-owned businesses you are helping to improve the economy in your neighborhood. When you buy local, your money stays local, and it strengthens the local economy in two ways.

More Reasons to Buy Locally

1. A local business will generate 70% more local activity per square foot than a big box store.

2. The money we spend locally will generate three and a half times more wealth for the local economy compared to chain-owned businesses.

3. If every U.S. family spent an additional $10 per month at a local shop, the result would be an additional $9.3 billion directly returned to the local economy.

4. Nearly 60% of workers at local businesses report a high commitment score to the business compared to only 39% at chains, which results in better customer service and an improved buying experience. 

Buying Locally is Eco-Friendly

While buying local is financially compelling to our communities; the benefits to our environment are equally impressive. Buying locally reduces the processing of goods, packaging. and transportation waste, which means less pollution. Communities that support local businesses foster unique, one-of-a-kind shopping experiences that often comes with an economic advantage. Local ownership also means that community members take part in making important decisions that will affect the community. They’re more likely to take into consideration how business and investment decisions will impact the entire community as opposed to solely focus on business profitability. There’s a measurable cultural shift underway redefining the way people make buying decisions. More people are concerned about the environment, how products are made and sourced, where materials originate, and a company’s overall social and environmental impact.
