Wondering why exactly you should support local businesses?
We live in a world consumed by large retailers and corporations. In fact, we can travel anywhere in the country or to the other side of the world and find franchises and businesses that are all too familiar.
Not only does this rip us off from experiencing a unique culture, creativity, people, and places, but also affects those who have unique talents and qualities that they want to share with the world! We’re drawn to brand names and retailers that we are comfortable with, because we know exactly what we can get, where we can get it, and what to expect out of it. But the downside is that we’re not really growing ourselves or growing in the community in which we live—we’re not supporting our neighbours!
Supporting local means moving away from the big corporations and retailers and finding what your community and niche has to offer to you! Local vendors can be anyone from the small-scale farmers to the hidden craftsmen who make locally-produced goods and choose to share their product on a smaller scale.
Here are some reasons you should support local the next time you’re about to purchase something:
One of the biggest advantages of going local is the health benefit you gain. Most local farmers offer grass fed meats, fresh eggs, and variety of fruits and vegetables. You don’t need to come home and wonder why the size of the fruit is the way it is or the color it is. You can shop around, ask questions and feel informed.
Love Your Community
When we support local, we create a special connection, bond, and relationship with the farmers, the vendors, and restaurant owners—the people who mean something to us and our families! The bond is personal and allows the relationships we form to flourish through trust and loyalty.
Supporting local links people together and builds economic and social relationships. How nice is to share our local artists when we have visitors from out of town? It makes for unique memories and genuine appreciation.
