Why You Should Shop Local
Shopping local for your pet’s needs rather than shopping at national chains helps boost our local community. According to the American Independent Business Alliance (AIBA), shopping local leads to about 48% of the cost of your purchase being recirculated into our local community. By shopping at a chain store, it is estimated that only 14% of the cost goes back to our local economy. We all work hard for our money so why not take what you have earned and invest it back into our local economy. Doing this can help support someone’s dream. Every dollar helps, especially during a pandemic. Local businesses are not able to be successful without the support of our local villagers.
