Did you know that when you spend $100 dollars at a local independent store, $68 returns to your local community? Spend that same amount at a national chain and it drops to $43 or less. Choose to shop local and you can help revive your local economy and your yard at the same time.
Try visiting the local garden center for all your landscaping needs. Or stop by the local hardware store in your community to purchase your tools and equipment this season. When you spend your money at a local business, you can assure that more of your dollar will be reinvested back into your community.
Not only that, but you can expect a better buying experience overall. Independent businesses employ knowledgeable staff to assist their customers with any questions or concerns they might have. They understand the products and can provide service and repair that national chains cannot. If you’re not sure which trimmer is best for your lawn or what kind of potting soil you need for those pansies, ask an employee and you can be sure they will guide you in the right direction. That’s the kind of personal service you can get at a local business that is incomparable to national chains.
Spring clean up is about the renewal and improvement of your lawn and garden. You can help renew and improve your local economy by choosing to shop local. Find a local business near you!
