There’s endless benefits of supporting your local businesses. It improves the community and the lives of everyone in it. Here’s how:
It benefits you personally:
Local businesses provide a more personal customer service experience. As part of the same community, we are better matched to handle any customer’s needs with in-depth knowledge of the area based on local statistics, of which, we are a part of. We know our customers because we are your neighbors and friends. Our children go to the same schools, we shop at the same stores, and eat at the same restaurants. We are an integrated part of the community and we’re listening. It is for this reason that we are able to provide such rich customer services. Our services are uniquely tailored to each customer as the need arises, as fellow consumers living within the same area, we are deeply in tune with not only business trends but what the customer needs to succeed. Whenever you have questions or concerns you can be sure you’ll be dealing with a friendly face, not an automated machine or a third party answering service. This makes things much more convenient for you as a consumer because you’re not wasting time figuring out which 800 number to call, pressing 1 for English, pressing 3 for customer service, holding …you get the idea.
It benefits the local economy and community:
The more money spent on local business equates to a richer local economic state. This ensures that when companies allow each other to thrive by dealing with each other, not only do they each benefit but the community, as a whole grows, and becomes stronger together. Each local business supported feeds directly into the immediate economic state of that community, so dealing, even with one local business, further allows that community to thrive. Local businesses being able to serve one another works with such an ease of motion because they do utilize the each other’s strengths. This allows for simple things such as restocking and providing the proper assets for jobs to become a much more streamlined process all the while benefitting not only local business but the local economy as well. Local businesses are the cornerstone of any community, they are the passion that each individual community thrives from. Franchise stores and restaurants are fine, but without independently owned business, a community loses its unique sense of identity and stagnates within its own monotony.
