What happens when you shop
at a locally owned store?
• More of what you spend stays in your
community through payroll dollars,
sales taxes, property taxes, and other
• The owners and their managers and
employees live in your community.
Their kids go to your area schools,
shop in your supermarkets, and
experience the same traffic, weather,
and local news. This means they
understand where you live.
• Locally owned stores give back.
They are the first ones called for
auction donations and sponsorship
dollars because the organization
asking them knows they care about
• The tax dollars they collect and/
or pay to the community and state
fund the services that help you, not
someone in another state: emergency,
police, fire; schools; road
• You get to ‘kick the tires’ before you
make a decision. You can see the
colors and samples and options in
person. You can examine the quality
of a dresser and do a ‘shake test’
on a bed. You can sit on the sofas,
loveseats, sectionals, office chairs,
dining chairs, and benches before
you commit to living with them.
Touching, feeling, sitting, and lying
down on furniture before you buy it
can be pretty darn important.
• An experienced professional is
there to assist you in person, to
answer your questions, to solve your
problems, and even to offer a great
place to grab lunch when you’re in
• You become part of the success
of your community.
