Why It’s Important to Support Local Businesses

Support Local BusinessAs you may already know, we are big supporters of our community! We believe that by offering quality service to everyone we touch that we are contributing to making the areas where we live, work and play better places.

So, we wanted to share with you some great insight on why supporting independent businesses in your community is so valuable!

Supporting Local Businesses Helps Improve the Local Economy

When you buy a product or service from a local business, more of that money you spend stays in that community. One study actually found that nearly 75% remained in the city!  

Keeps the Community Unique

One of the many wonderful things we love about Southern California is the diversity – restaurants that offer unique cuisine, shops that offer handmade goods and more. By supporting these types of businesses, you’re contributing to keeping your community an eclectic and exciting place that never feels stale or generic!

More Personalized Service

Have you ever walked into a coffee shop to be greeted by name? It’s a great feeling! Local businesses typically work hard to know their customers and their needs, wants and likes. And, there’s nothing like someone preparing your order before you even order!

Builds New Relationships

Meeting new people and making connections are important parts of life in general. When you purchase from a local business, there is more likely a personal goal from that business owner to ensure you are overjoyed with their product or service. So, ultimately, they are more invested in seeing you as a happy customer.

These are just a few reasons why we love local businesses and support them!
