What Does Buy Local Mean?
Local purchasing is a preference to buy locally produced goods and services over those produced farther away. It is very often abbreviated as a positive goal, "buy local". Spending at local independent businesses generates more jobs and wealth in the local economy compared to spending at absentee-owned businesses, including corporate chains. Local businesses are the lifeblood of our economy. And during this unprecedented disruption in the lives of the average consumer, small businesses are the most vulnerable. The goal is simple, keep as much of our money in the local economy as possible by purchasing from local businesses. Check out all the local businesses below.
