Why should you #shopsmall?
Hands-on customer service
At a small business, chances are you’ll be waited on by the owner, a member of their family, or someone who reports directly to the owner. This proximity to the boss makes for better customer service – something that can be hard to find at larger stores.
We offer customized quotes and information, convenient in-house visits and professional installation services instead of having to go to a big-box retailer, try to figure out what works for you, flag down a worker to get the bare minimum of information, and blanch at the outrageous installation costs that bigger chain outlets demand.
Your local economy will benefit
Shopping small creates and supports local jobs. Each time you purchase a product or a service on Main Street, you are helping to pay the salary of a friend or neighbor.
Further, spending locally ensures sales taxes are re-invested in the community and helps build a stronger local economy.
The national economy will benefit
Historically, two-thirds of net new jobs in this country are created by small business. Small firms are also responsible for over half of national GDP. There’s nothing small about that.
Sometimes less is more
Let’s be honest – sometimes you’d rather have to choose between a handful of television sets or warm boots instead of a warehouse full of them. Your local retailers have done some of the legwork for you – offering a select inventory aimed at matching what you’re looking for in terms of quality and value.
A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based, not on a national sales plan, but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, guarantees a much broader range of product choices.
Small business gives back
Research shows that over 90 percent of small-business owners contribute each year to their communities through volunteering, in-kind contributions, and/or direct cash donations. That means your purchase of a good or service at a small business is a great way to “pay it forward.” Compared to chain stores, locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share of their revenue back into the local economy, enriching the whole community.
It’s good to be part of the dream
Small-business owners are the embodiment of the American Dream; supporting them makes you part of the dream, and that’s a good thing.
