REASONS TO USE LOCALLY OWNED BUSINESSES
All businesses had to start somewhere. If you have ever been in the position of trying to start your own business, then you know how hard it is just to make ends meet sometimes. Most big brand name businesses have the advantage of ongoing support and training. The head office has the resources of market research and advertising.
Occasionally we are all lured by cheaper prices and the convenience of big name brands. Instead of using a large franchise that offers indifferent service, why not use a local service that offers a personal touch in a professional manner. Independent owners are allowed to be creative with what they have to offer. They don’t fit you into a little box with set rules. They can offer your business an array of services that suit your unique needs.
It’s easy to forget how important small independent businesses are to our collective well being. They provide jobs and support local charities that keep the local profits circulating instead of enriching distant organizations and their stock holders. They recycle the dollars back into the community.
Using a local service doesn’t have to cost more. Local businesses work hard to keep their prices competitive. Small businesses are usually more receptive to personalize the services you need – just ask them.
BUILD A BETTER WORLD
In this computer driven world isn’t it nice to have a personal experience with a real person that makes you smile? Quite frequently the person you are dealing with is the owner of that business. When you shop locally you are helping either a local business store or service and therefore the community you live in.
Don’t let big businesses take over our entire world.
Hope you have a great Wednesday! Only 2 more days to go until the weekend!
