SUPPORT LOCAL CHRISTMAS CAMPAIGN

Posted by Angela Nason on

Hello our wonderful humans in our community

Have you thought about what you will be doing this Christmas in regards to gift buying for your family, friends & loved ones?

Are you aware of the importance of supporting your local businesses in your local community? For your local businesses every transaction counts especially in the current volatile economy, by spending your hard earned dollars locally it means that you keep those dollars inside your local economy. It makes sense to support local rather than spending with nationally wide companies which take your money outside of your local economy or worse - overseas.

Your local businesses are your friends, family, neighbour or someone you know. If their businesses are successful they are able to employee local staff, contractors & use the services of other businesses in your community. A lot of your local businesses are run by the owners, you will be getting better customer service, you can build trust & have a great relationship with them. Most often these business owners will shake your hand with a thank you for supporting them. I'm not sure about you, I can only speak for myself but I've never had a handshake or thank you from the owners of KMart after spending my hard earned dollars in their store.......

A lot of your local businesses will donate a percentage of their profits to your local charity groups, schools or sponsor your local sporting clubs.

Supporting your local businesses in turn supports the rest of your community.

Another very important factor is the carbon foot print is smaller when you support your local businesses which is far better for the environment.
