It's true that more than half of all jobs are created by small businesses and that local businesses return 3 times more to their communities than chains.
But what makes local really matter is unique to each of us...
For some people it's a desire to protect their local economy.
For others it feels good to be known by name at local shops.
The environmental benefits of minimizing transport are important to many of us.
And who doesn't want to create local jobs and support local entrepreneurs?
For all those reasons and more, shopping locally makes sense and is the best way to create a more sustainable, prosperous and pleasurable world to live in.
That's why we've been working hard for 16 years to develop a way to help communities keep it local.
