Using resources available locally helps our communities in multiple ways. For every $100 spent in a local, independent store or service provider, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures according tot he 3-50 Project. A national store or service provider keeps $43 dollars in the local economy and if you buy over the Internet, $0 stays local.
There are many resources available locally to help your business and ways to promote shopping local.
