Shopping local benefits the environment.  Many small/local businesses offer the same products as larger franchise stores, but are much closer to you and your family.  Less drive time means less carbon emissions leads to healthier air.

4. Customer Service is A++

Community members of your neighborhood will be helping you at local shops! Smaller businesses have a smaller but more connected workforce.  The family-fell in the shop will make you feel like a member.

5.Help local businesses “Live Long and Prosper!”

Supporting one local business is not only supporting them, but the multiple other local businesses they source from.  Local and small businesses are a tight knit community that work and sell together.

6. Social Media fun

Social media is a great way to connect with friends, right?  Now start connecting with your community.  Follow your locally owned businesses on social medias to keep updated with new products or family fun events.  There is also a better chance a small business will feature you on their page!  

7. Taxes, who likes them?
