Save the local economy 3 stores at a time. Save the brick and mortars our nation was built on. Think about 3 independently owned stores you would miss most if they were gone (Hallowed Grounds). Stop in and say hello. Pick up a little something that will make you or someone else smile. Your contribution is what keeps these businesses around.
If just half of the employed population spent $50 each month in independently owned stores, their purchases would generate $42,619,700,000 in revenue. Imagine the positive impact if 3/4 of employed Americans did that!
For every $100 spent in independently locally owned stores, $68 of it returns to the local community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain store, only $43 stays here. Spend it online (unless its local online, like us) and nothing at all comes home.
You can make a difference! Start a trend today, shop local (@ Hallowed Grounds) & tell your friends to do the same!
