5 Reasons to Shop Local


Every community has their staple Small business’, whether it’s a deli, flower shop or dry cleaners. I’m sure most people are just like us at Cedarhurst Party and wonder “How they stay in business” in a world dominated by corporate national chains and big-box superstores. We’ve put together a list of the 5 reasons why you should keep your cash close to home!


1. Strengthen your local economy
When you shop locally you show pride in your city and help protect the businesses that help make your city unique!


2. Keep money local
When you keep money moving through your local community, prices are better because the local small business doesn’t have the large overhead that the larger stores may have.


3. Create local jobs & opportunities
Some people say that it’s not hard to create jobs, but there is something really special about a small local business and the working environment that they have the ability to create. People who work for a small local business would tell you that they don’t just work there, they are a integral part of a tight knit group of people who support, encourage and believe in each other!


4. Better experience
Local businesses do what they do because they are passionate about their products and typically invest the time it takes to get to know their customers! They’ll often go the extra mile to ensure you are a satisfied customer!


5. Product knowledge
Local businesses are well informed about their product and know what they are selling. They know their customers well and can easily adjust their inventories to include the goods and services that local people want to buy. Local businesses choose those diverse products that you can’t find anywhere else. They can also make decisions quickly when it comes to bringing in new items to meet their customers needs.
