Buy Local: Why?
We've all heard the Chant "Buy Local", but do you know why buying local is smart? There are many reasons.
When you buy from independent, locally owned businesses, rather than national chains, a significantly greater portion of your money is then cycled back to your local economy. When you make purchases from local farms and businesses, you ultimately strengthen the base of your whole community.
Locally owned businesses make more local purchases, requiring less transportation. In today's age of rising fuel costs, this makes a significant impact on the price you pay.
Small businesses tend to select product based on the needs of their local customers, giving you goods relative to your lifestyle and climate. They are also able to offer a broader range of product choices and price ranges, as they are not restricted by corporate buying structures.
Products made in the USA have more strict and transparent regulations on product quality. Every piece of furniture has to meet the requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). Made in the USA products tend not to incur as many supply chain delays and when delays occur, locally sourced products recover quicker.
