[avatar user=”Greg Wasson” size=”75″ align=”left” /]Locally owned family businesses have been and continue to be the backbone of the American economy. Why? According to a report by sustainableconnections.org you are supporting yourself when you buy local. Several studies have shown that buying from locally owned businesses means significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses and service providers.
Another point made in the report is the impact on the environment. Locally owned businesses can make more local purchases requiring less transportation and they generally set up their business in city centers as opposed to developing elsewhere. This means contributing less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss, and pollution.
Locally owned family businesses are the largest employer nationally, and in the community, provide the most jobs to residents. Irish Companies employ over 60 local people.
Local businesses often hire people with a better understanding of the products they are selling and take more time to get to know their customers.
