Support small business
Many people wonder why we should support small businesses. The answer is straightforward. Local businesses are operated and owned by your friends and neighbors. These individuals truly care about the well-being of you and your community.
By shopping local, you are not only supporting your community, but you are also supporting your local economy. Studies show that more money sticks in a community when purchases are made at locally owned establishments versus nationally owned businesses. A report by the U.S. Department of Labor suggests that $68 out of every $100 spent at a small business will stay in the community.
Supporting small businesses is not only good for the local economy, but it is also good for the environment. Local businesses often have a much smaller carbon footprint than larger companies, and they prioritize designing, creating, and packaging each individual order, rather than mass producing items for the public.
Angie’s Showroom is not only a small business, but it is also women-owned. Deciding to shop at a women-owned local business means that you are investing in women’s economic empowerment all over the world. It also makes you an advocate for gender parity in commerce, an incredibly relevant and important issue nowadays. When you take the time to shop at Angie’s Showroom, or any women-owned small business, you contribute to building a network for female business owners and provide support that is hard to come by.
So, the next time you are thinking about shopping, look into locally-owned, small businesses, particularly women-owned, and support the business owners working hard to share their products and passions with the world.
