#shoplocal isn’t just a catchy hashtag. Shopping Local keeps our local businesses and community thriving. ⁠

Did you know?

🤔 For every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community vs $43 if you buy from a national chain!

🤔 Buying from a locally-owned business conserves energy and resources in the form of less fuel for transportation and less packaging.

🤔 Local businesses donate to community causes at more than twice the rate of chains. 

🤔 Local businesses carry a wider array of unique products because they buy for their own individual markets

🤔 Local businesses generate 70% more local economic activity per square foot than big-box retail.

Our community wouldn’t be the same without our small, independent retailers. We love them and encourage you to show your support by keeping your gift-giving as local as possible this year! ⁠

And many of them offer online ordering and shipping! ⁠

Check out our directory at members.exeterarea.org/list to find our community-minded small business members! ⁠
