Why?

Local Business supports our Village. They create a positive and enduring economic and social environment. More of your money stays here, supporting Village services, parks, recreation, schools, libraries and other things that make this community a great place to live.

Studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally owned business, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, and service providers. This continues to strengthen the economic base of the community. These studies show that locally-owned businesses generate a premium in enhanced economic impact to the community and our tax base.

Small local businesses are the largest employer nationally and in our community. They create more jobs while providing the most jobs to residents. They also very often hire people with a better understanding of the products they sell and take more time to get to know customers. Creating a better service environment for customers.

They encourage local prosperity because entrepreneurs and skilled workers are more likely to invest and settle in communities that preserve their business. Traditionally they also provide better wages and benefits than chains do. Even Non-profit organizations benefit receiving an average 250% more support from smaller business owners than they do from large businesses.

Local stores require comparatively little infrastructure and make more efficient use of public services. They utilize your taxes better because they require little investment in said infrastructure. They are better for the environment. Helping to sustain vibrant, compact, walkable town centers which reduce automobile use, air and water pollution.
