Why Shop Local

MORE JOBS: When businesses grow, more jobs open up. The new employees and their families then add their support and spend money in the community.

OUR SHOPS HELP PEOPLE: It is known that local businesses are more likely to support local charities, schools and events. Supporting local shops supports the community.

GREAT PRODUCTS, GREAT PRICES: Our businesses offer a wide range of products and services at affordable prices. Plus, think about this. The more you shop at a place, the more it grows, which means more products and even lower prices.

SAVE BUSINESSES: Wouldn't you dislike it if all the local shops just disappeared? By shopping there you are asking them to stay and grow.

BE DISTINCT: Local shops tend to local needs. They know you and create distinctive shopping experiences and stock different products to cater to the community.

PRESERVE THE ENVIRONMENT: Local shops often stock a high percentage of local goods. That means less gas is used to transfer goods, which also means a cleaner environment. Plus, local foods are better for you!

CONVENIENT FOR EVERYONE: Most people can get to their local shops easily. This is especially important for the young, elderly and anyone without transportation.

BRING MORE TO THE GRAND STRAND: Private and public sector services cluster around shops. The more they see economic growth, the more attracted they are to moving their business here.
