|"The fact of the matter is that today, stuff-selling mega-corporations have a huge influence on our daily lives. And because of the competitive nature of our global economy, these corporations are generally only concerned with one thing.. the bottom line. That is, maximizing profit, regardless of the social or environmental costs." - David Suzuki|
Your local community businesses care about more than just the bottom line. They are your neighbors, friends and family. Community businesses reinvest in the community. You constantly vote for the type of businesses you want in your community with your support. Today is Small Business Saturday. Please consider taking a break from the Big Box Stores and Malls to enrich your own community through your holiday spending.
