Shopping Local, Why is it good for you?

Local communities are built around resourceful and reliable local businesses that provide services and sell goods such as shops, beauty salons, restaurants and bars places to take your family to have fun and socialise. Local businesses can offer so much more than the products that they sell and the services they offer. They provide a community and a safe place for younger generations. When you shop local and support local businesses it benefits your local area. Here are a few reasons why YOU should really shop local.

  1. It Helps your Local Economy

When you shop local, you can actually see where your money is going. You’re supporting jobs in your area and providing well deserved investment in the local economy. However small your spend might be each time you shop local it makes a MASIVE difference. We’ve found that local businesses make an effort to shop local too, because they know what it means and the difference it makes by shopping local.

Shopping local contributes to taxes which brings further benefits to your local area, results are now showing that if you spend just £10 locally it could be worth up to £50 in your local economy.

2. It’s All About The Quality Baby…

When you Shop local you’re buying quality because that local shop owner knows and understands for you to buy from them their products must be of the highest quality or else you won’t come back. This means you’re building a relationship with them as they offer help, understanding and expertise to get you what you want at the best possible price. 

3. Now Things Are Getting Back To Normal

As restrictions have eased and we’re starting to get back to some form of normality venturing out again is good for you and everyone. Interacting with people in local shops, pubs, restaurants can be daunting for some people, especially after lockdown so don’t forget just a little smile or a quick “Hi, how are you” might make all the difference and may just make their day.

4. Where Does it Come From?

Have you ever taken the time to actually think about where your products come from? Local businesses do, they often make sure that their items are locally sourced. Local businesses often use other local businesses they collaborate together which benefits your local economy 

5. How Much!!!

Just because it’s local doesn’t mean it has to be expensive. Now more than ever local businesses need your business and will make sure there’s deals and bargains to be had. Sometimes there’s buy one get one free or buy one get one half price, take advantage of these offers and tell your friends where you found a great deal. We all know that word of mouth is the best form of local advertising, just imagine if you told one friend and they told one friend and it goes on and on - Think what your local high street would look like then. Bargains galore and busy shops rather than empty and boarded up shops.
