About 48% of each dollar spent at independently- and locally-owned businesses continues circulating in the local economy. A marketplace of more businesses spurs competition, encouraging innovation and lower prices to customers over the long-term. Product diversity increases, since more and smaller businesses can select products based on the needs and interests of their customers and themselves. More local jobs are created, sometimes with better wages and benefits. Less infrastructure is required and public services are used more efficiently. Communities become more walkable, in turn decreasing vehicle use; air, water, and soil pollution; and habitat loss. Come and relax for a sip while checking out why’s and where’s of independently- and locally-owned products and services.
