Buying Local---Independant Owned Businesses

Being an independantly owned business of course I'm interested in buying local campaigns that are spreading across our nation. On facebook I follow the 3/50 Project and Independant We Stand

Now that’s a partridge in a pear tree!

According to the PNC Christmas Price Index, the 2010 cost for each of the items from the “Twelve Days of Christmas” song would be $23,439. If you bought the items from independent, locally owned stores in your town, $15,938.52 would be reinvested in your community through taxes, payroll and other local expenditures. If you bought them at national chain stores, only $10,078.77 would be re-invested locally. If you bought them at a big box store that number would drop even more. So this holiday season give a gift to your community and “buy local.”
