Why buy from independently owned businesses?
Because it helps you, your neighbors, your community, your state and your country.
LocalShops1's Call to Action:
Shift your spending: Move $5 of your weekly budget from a national corporation to a locally owned business.
Spread the word: Recommend independent businesses your friends and lead by example-- support local when you go out, get repairs done or go shopping. Feel free to print the flyer below and plaster it all over town!
Together we can make a difference.
If every family in the Tampa-St. Petersburg metro area spent just $10 a month with a locally owned, independent business instead of a national chain,more than $89,058,893*would be directly returned to the Tampa-St. Petersburg community. That means better schools, better roads, more support for police, fire and rescue departments and stronger local economies.
