Shop with Local Independent Retailers!

 

» South Dakota Rural Enterprise Inc. found that a dollar spent at an independent retailer is usually spent six to 15 times in the community before heading out of town. Just $1 can create $5 to $14 of value in the immediate area.

 

» According to the Indiana Main Street Program, only 6 cents of a dollar spent at a big-box retailer stays in the area.

 

» The Institute for Local Self-Reliance found that each $100 spent at local independents generated $45 of secondary local spending, compared with $14 for a big-box chain.

 

» According to the SBA, since 1990 big businesses eliminated 4 million jobs, while small businesses added 8 million jobs.

 

» A Civic Economics study in New Orleans found that if residents and visitors were to shift 10 percent of their spending from chains to local businesses, it would generate an additional $235 million a year in local economic activity, creating many new opportunities and jobs.

 

» According to the Andersonville Study of Retail Economics, local business generates 70 percent more local economic activity per square foot than big-box retailers.

 

» A survey published in the journal Local Economy found that 57.2 percent of small-firm workers scored in the highest commitment/employee loyalty category, compared with 40.5 percent of large-firm workers.

 
 
 

Something to think about:

 

If every family in the U.S. spent an extra $10 a month at a locally owned, independent business instead of a national chain, over $9.3 billion would be directly returned to our economy.

-or-

If every quilter in the U.S. spends an extra $10 a month at a locally owned, independent fabric retailer instead of a national chain, roughly $85 million would be directly returned to the local economy.
