DOING OUR PART
The purpose of “Customer Spotlight” is to encourage people to recognize and support our local businesses. Local farmers, craftsmen, antiques dealers, and other product providers, make items locally and sell on a smaller scale. Communities thrive when we work together. Leading by example and teaching work ethics to our children, preserves our distinctive character.
Locally owned small businesses build strong communities by keeping dollars in the local economy. They promote local decision making, create jobs and provide better wages and benefits. Economics clearly show that when local businesses have more support the entire community is stronger.
Small business owners influence others in the community. They demonstrate ingenuity, entrepreneurship, integrity, responsibility, & discipline. They are the cornerstone to building partnerships.
You’re support is vital to a thriving community. Local businesses hire local workers. In addition to staff for the stores, they hire architects and contractors for building and remodeling, accountants and insurance brokers to help them run the business, and ad agencies to promote it.
