Are you struggling to find that perfect gift with distinctive character? Valentine’s Day nearly is here and you don’t want to be caught futzing around with last minute gift ideas, or be left empty-handed.
…gift shopping from the heart.
While shopping for your sweetie, why not consider browsing locally to support small, independently owned shops instead of hitting up big box stores, chains and franchises?
Here are some of the benefits to shopping from locally-owned and operated independent businesses and boutiques:
Locally owned businesses purchase from other local businesses and service providers, which re-circulates your dollars and fosters local job creation. More of your dollars are kept within your own community.
So, why enrich others when you can invest right in your own neighborhood!
Shopping locally also contributes to helping a community to thrive, as independent shop owners are more likely to invest in their community, as well.
And when it comes to shopping, service matters. Whether purchasing from the local grocer, pharmacist, or corner florist, an independent shop can offer that personal touch with excellent and superior customer service. You know who you’re buying from, and feel that you matter.
Locally owned businesses build strong and sustainable town centers, linking neighbors into a beneficial web of social and economical ties, and enriching local causes.
While on the gift hunt, supporting your locally owned businesses guarantees a much broader range of choices for some really cute and unique gifts!
Okay, by now you’ve selected that perfect gift. Well done, you! Now let’s mosey on to the giveaway.
