Buy Local – It Makes A Difference!
The Buy Local movement is an economic initiative for creating strong local economies. It’s based on keeping dollars circulating within the local community by patronizing those independent, locally owned and operated businesses.
That’s because studies show that when you buy from an independent, locally-owned business, rather than a nationally-owned chain or business, for every dollar you spend, twice as much will be reinvested in your community by that local business. That’s a great return! A sustainable community needs a sustainable economy, and that starts with locally-owned independent businesses.
A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products and unique services based not on a national sales plan but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, guarantees a much broader range of product choices.
We all create our communities. Let’s continue to create a strong and vibrant Harpswell as a legacy for those who follow.
