Why Shop Local?
- Enrich Our Community: Nobody wants to live in a neighborhood that lacks a farmers market and small business culture. With an every changing and growing downtown community, it is more important than ever before to show that we take pride in shopping local and supporting our small businesses. We all know that small businesses provide an undeniable vibrancy and sentiment vital to community life.
- Original, Fresh and Handmade: If you like to give original, handmade gifts, you can’t beat shopping at a locally owned business. Business owners take pride in high craftsmanship and originality of their products. When it comes to food – you can taste the flavors of fresh local ingredients.
- Personalized Experience: Shopping at small local businesses always offers a personal and sincere customer-owner interaction, impossible to replicate with large-scale vendors. Small business shop owners are interested in their clients, know their wants and needs, and are willing to give their customer personal attention to answer questions about their products. Furthermore, a small business owner is passionately and inextricably linked to the success of his or her business, which means they are experts on the product that they create and sell
