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.

Freedom Readers Named February Nonprofit of the Month

A simple mission to help kids read better led Tracy Bailey to launch Freedom Readers in 2010. It started with just two sites and 40 scholars and students. Today, Freedom Readers serves 20 sites with about 230 children.
