Easter Spending - Hop to Shop Local

Early estimates indicate the Easter Bunny will spend more than $13.03 billion* filling baskets this year. Independent We Stand is encouraging the Bunny to shop in locally-owned candy shops, bakeries and toy stores this year to have a more profound impact on local communities. If that spending were all directed to independent shops and businesses, it is estimated that nearly $8.86 billion** of those dollars would return right back into local economies, building better schools, infrastructure and community.

Shop Local

*According to 2010 consumer spending statistics from the National Retail Federation.
**Based upon Andersonville Study of Retail Economics that says when you spend $100 at an independent business, $68 returns to the local community. Spend that same amount at a national chain and it drops to $43.
