Small businesses give back more to your community
When you support a local business, you’re also supporting YOUR town. Business pay sales taxes to the city and county the business is located in. Plus, that tax money is used to support public schools, parks, roads, and sidewalks, as well as fund public service workers, like firefighters.
Several studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally-owned business, rather than a nationally-owned businesses, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers, and farms — continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community.

How do you get more involved in the small business movement? This is a great start:
Shop small, of course! And not just on Small Business Saturday, but every day that you can. Go to your locally owner stores and get to know the owner who’s paying taxes to keep your neighborhood alive.
Get vocal on social – Post pictures, tweets, and status updates of either the small business you own, or of yourself shopping at one, and be sure to use the hashtag #ShopSmall. Also write positive reviews for the small businesses you love and support.
