“I shop locally because it is important to me that I support my fellow neighbors and citizens. I care about the vitality of my community and I know that when I shop locally, I am making an impact by keeping my dollars circulating in the local economy. The connections and relationships I have made with local business owners enhance the quality of my life.”
