When you shop local, you always know who you are dealing with. With Royal Garage Door, Eric and Gary are the only two people who you will talk to on the phone and the only who people who you will ever expect in your home.
When you choose local businesses and run into a problem, you’re more likely to receive a satisfactory resolution than from a big-box chain. That’s because you personally worked with the people in charge. With Royal Garage Door, either Eric or Gary answered your first phone call, were at your house doing repairs, giving you a bid, or diagnosing problems, and will be the only people at your home or business to resolve the issue. No middle-man or alternative agenda!
Locally owned businesses build strong communities. By linking neighbors, both economically and socially, we build up our own and each other’s businesses and hometowns. This means that during economic down-turns, communities that shop local and rely on each other will be less-likely to be negatively impacted.
By shopping local, you are keeping your dollars in your own community. Compared to chain stores, locally owned businesses recycle a much larger amount of their revenue back into the local economy. The result is that the local tax base grows. A stronger tax base means improved schools, better roads, and greater support for your local police and fire departments—enriching the lives of everyone from our grandparents to our children!
Entrepreneurship fuels America’s economic innovation and prosperity! By supporting local entrepreneurship you support the current businesses and also allow future generations to prosper!
Competition of many small businesses ensures low prices over the long-term. Unlike chain-stores or multi-national conglomerates who can raise prices because they own an entire marketplace, many local businesses are all competing for the lowest price and the most satisfied customers, not the highest profit!
A multitude of small businesses guarantees a much broader range of product choices. Since everyone has their own personal taste and preference, having a large selection of locally owned small businesses ensures you will be able to choose exactly what you are looking for.
When shopping at locally owned business, local non-profits, events, and teams get more support. Local businesses donate more money and time to local charities, directly benefitting your friends, family, neighbors, and local communities.
Shopping locally helps the environment! Independent, community-serving businesses are usually smaller in size. They typically consume less land and have more efficient land usage, carry more locally-made products, and have a more central location meaning they are closer to residents and create less traffic (less demand on our roads, sewers, and safety services) and less air pollution.
Shopping local doesn’t have to cause stress! Remember, you don’t have to shop local every time to make an impact. Getting in the mindset of shopping and doing business locally first is all it takes to start improving your community.
