The Importance of Shopping Locally

Shopping at local, independent retailers keeps more of your money in your community.

We hire your neighbors and friends, we pay taxes to support local roads, schools, parks and libraries, we often donate to your children’s schools and other worthy community causes, we buy many of our supplies and much of our inventory locally, and we actually create real community in the myriad connections that people make in our store and through our events and activities. None of these things are true for retailers who sell only online.
