Why Think Local First

What’s Spent Here, Stays Here
Locally owned businesses spend profits locally, purchase more goods from local suppliers, and employ local office and support staff.

Get More for Your Money
When more money gets recirculated in the community, general prosperity as well as tax revenues increase, creating a more vibrant and sustainable economy.

Unique Local Character
A wide variety of locally owned businesses contributes to a stronger local identity and cultural diversity, creating an attractive place to live, work, and play.

Neighborly
Strengthening our locally owned business community promotes authentic and meaningful relationships between employees, business owners, customers, suppliers, and neighbors. Business owners, who live locally, take better care of the environment, participate in public life, and donate generously to local charities.
