Shop Small and Make a BIG Impact in Your Community
Did you know that shopping at a Vermont independently owned retailer keeps 56% of revenue in the local community versus just 14% of revenue kept in the community when shopping at a chain? Local businesses need you more than ever this holiday season. Use your buying power and buy/eat local to help your neighbors, to protect downtowns, to preserve community identity, and to reduce wealth concentration and income inequality.
Want to dive deeper into the impact of buying local? Check out this economic impact study released this September from Vital Communities. Here’s an interesting summary of the findings:
Loss to Amazon in 2019 from Upper Valley (Sullivan & Grafton Counties in NH, Windsor & Orange Counties in VT):
o $165 million
o 127 retailers
o 1,453 jobs
Merchant revenue re-circulation into the Upper Valley:
o Local restaurants 68%
o Chain restaurants 30%
o Local merchants 56%
o Chain retailers 14%
o Amazon 0%
Support small independent retailers and restaurants and bring joy and cheer to your community this holiday season.
