Non-profit organizations receive on average 250% more
support from smaller business owners than they do from large businesses.
3) KEEP OUR COMMUNITY UNIQUE
Where we shop, where we eat and have fun — all of it makes
our community home. Our one-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the
distinctive character of this place.
4) REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

requiring less transportation, and generally set up shop in town or city
centers as opposed to developing on the fringe. This generally means contributing
less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss, and pollution.

little infrastructure investment and make more efficient use of public services
as compared to nationally- owned stores entering the community.

A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is
the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term. A
multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based not on a national
sales plan but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers
guarantees a much broader range of product choices.
10) ENCOURAGE LOCAL PROSPERITY
A growing body of economic research shows that in an
increasingly homogenized world, entrepreneurs and skilled workers are more
likely to invest and settle in communities that preserve their one-of-a-kind
businesses and distinctive character.
