Why Shop Local

Although it is a bit self servicing, if you shop locally, 40 to 67% of the money you spend stays within the community and gets recycled 3 to 4 times, creating more jobs,  before leaving the area. Compare this to spending money at a chain store or online. If you spend money at a Wal-mart only 17-20% stays in your community and, of course, if you buy online, it all leaves the area immediately, creating no local benefits.
