Why Buy Local?
So many reasons! Here are our favorite two, but you can read more by clicking here.
1. More money stays in the Louisville area. Independent local businesses employ an array of supporting services, circulating money in and strengthening the local economy. They hire local architects, designers, cabinet shops, sign makers, and contractors, Local accountants, insurance brokers, computer consultants, attorneys, and advertising agencies help run them.
Dollars spent at community based merchants create a multiplier effect in the local economy as evidenced by our recent study.
2. Locally-owned independent businesses "keep Louisville weird." These businesses are one-of-a-kind enterprises that are vital to the unique character of our community - they help give us our sense of place.
