What does “shop local” mean to you?
Shop local means supporting small town America at its best. When customers support local retailers, local retailers are there to help customers too.
How does shopping local impact small businesses?
My husband and I both have small businesses and we live in the community where our businesses are located. Shopping local helps to keep the money within your community and builds a circle of support – and when you have a circle of support, you have a stable business and a stable community.
How did your business fare in last year’s Shop Local event?
It was great – we did a tremendous business! People were having fun with it, they came out with enthusiasm. It was a wonderful day.
Anything else to add?
Anything that focuses on local business is great. Especially in this economy, advertising money is precious – so having Chesapeake Bank step in to help with advertising is precious, too.
