More Reasons to Shop Local

  1. Receive a More Personal Touch

Employees typically become personally invested in the local products or services they sell and are more likely to provide exceptional customer service. The superb service is because they possess a wealth of knowledge about each product, including its uses, backstory, and overall description, which they proudly share with customers.

  1. Creates More Local Jobs

Did you know that small local businesses are the largest employers in the country? In fact, since the 1970s, over 65% of new jobs have been created by small businesses. Even more impressive is that small businesses tend to employ more people per dollar of revenue and support other local businesses as customers.

  1. Unique and Exclusive Products

Shopping at a local business can introduce you to unique and exclusive products made using specialized techniques, processes, and ingredients. These small-batch products may not be cost-efficient for mass production, making them even more special. Selling them at South Point Grocery keeps them in business and supplies the community with goods they could end up enjoying immensely.

  1. Environmental Impact is Reduced

Since South Point Grocery is within walking or biking distance for many people living in the downtown area, it provides a centralized variety much friendlier to a community’s walk score than traveling out of the area to bigger chain stores. So, pat yourself on the back when you walk or bike to South Point Grocery, as this means you are contributing to less traffic congestion, habitat loss, and pollution.

  1. It Helps Create the Identity of Your Community

A city with distinctive and lively shops will have a more appealing aesthetic that appeals to locals and tourists. Additionally, independent businesses bring some much-needed originality to the community. Plus, supporting local businesses can revive communities overrun by generic and commercialized companies.
