Every day more and more people just like you are choosing to support local companies over nationally-owned companies, because they’ve taken the time to learn the facts.

FACT: National companies don’t create jobs.  They actually reduce the number of jobs in your community.  For every two new jobs a national company “creates” three jobs are lost from one of your local companies.


FACT: Local governments often give tax incentives to attract nationally-owned companies to their communities.  But if these corporations are paying less in taxes it can only mean that local residents are paying more.  When you buy from local companies it lessens individual tax burdens and creates up to 75% more tax revenues for your community.


FACT: In tough economic times while local companies are doing everything they can to remain a viable option for their communities, national companies often close their local facilities in favor of more profitable locations.
