Since 1963, small businesses have been celebrated in this country with a week of their own. This week is National Small Business Week! It is a time to recognize the contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.
There is so much value in supporting small businesses in this country. When you #buylocal, you put more money into your local economy… it goes to work better for your community. You create a catalyst for economic recovery and transformation in your local community.
Our friends at Independent We Stand say it best:
You can support the cause and help revive the local economy by shopping at your friends’ and neighbors’ local stores. Buy their products. Eat their food. Use their services. In turn, these locally owned and operated businesses will continually pump your hard-earned dollars back into the local economy by way of taxes, payrolls and purchases.
These locals aren’t just “moms and pops.” They’re all about family—brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, cousins, neighbors, friends—all the people who make your community a wonderful place to live.
They’re scout leaders, volunteer firemen, Little League coaches. They’re the folks who sing in the church choir, rescue animals and help feed the less fortunate.
We know that you’re gonna support larger national chainstores, but we hope that you will learn the benefits that we will all feel when you buy from your locally and family owned retailer. We’re proud to be involved within our communities in North Georgia. We’re here for you. Let us know how we can serve you.
