Go Local !

Posted by

Heartbreaker is a small independent locally owned retailer.  Always has been, always will be.  So we have all heard everyone say, "Shop Local" !  So what does that really mean and how does it really benefit anyone?

1-Strengthen the local economy!

Each dollar you spend at independent businesses returns 3 times more money to your local economy than one spent at a chain (almost 50 times more than buying from an online mega-retailer) — a benefit we all can bank on.

2-You can buy it where you try it!

We have all had that experience where the item you ordered online isn't what you wanted, didn't fit, a different thing than you ordered or came damaged.  What you thought was a time saver now is taking more time than just going to the local store and buying it!   Local stores enable you to try on and try out items before you buy — and get real expertise — saving your time and money.

3-Enhance choices!

What's the best thing about traveling?  Experiencing local culture, restaurants and shops!  It is a bummer when you go somewhere new and all there is are the same chains that you have in your neighborhood.  How can you change that?  By frequenting locally owned businesses.  There you can have unique experiences and find unique things that you can't find at the chains. Independent businesses help give your community its distinct personality.

4-Build community!

Get out of the house and talk to real people! The casual encounters you enjoy at neighborhood–scale businesses and the public spaces around them build relationships and community cohesiveness. They’re the ultimate social networking sites!

5-More jobs and opportunity

Not only do independent businesses employ more people directly per dollar of revenue, they also are the customers of local printers, accountants, wholesalers, farmers, attorneys, etc., expanding opportunities for local entrepreneurs.
