Why Buy Local?
In an independent study called the Andersonville Study of Retail Economics locally-owned businesses generate a substantial Local Premium in enhanced economic impact.
For every $100 in consumer spending with a local firm, $68 remains in the local economy.
For every $100 in consumer spending with a chain firm, $43 remains in the local economy.
For every square foot occupied by a local firm, local economic impact is $179.
For every square foot occupied by a chain firm, local economic impact is $105.
The study suggests clear policy implications:
Local merchants generate substantially greater economic impact than chain firms.
Replacement of local businesses with chains will reduce the overall vigor of the local economy.
Changes in consumer spending habits can generate substantial local economic impact.
Great care must be taken to ensure that public policy decisions do not inadvertently disadvantage locally owned businesses. Indeed, it may be in the best interests of communities to institute policies that directly protect them.
