Buy Local. spend it here. keep it here.
At A. Dodson’s we love to promote our fellow small businesses, but who wouldn’t after hearing about all the benefits of buying local? Investing in local businesses means investing in YOU and your community! Small businesses are what make our community unique. They are the must-visit destinations for those passing through. They bring character to our city and make it stand out. If that isn’t enough to encourage you buying local, think about your last visit to your Big Box Mart. Remember that superb customer service from the happy, friendly employees? Chances are, you don’t! Small businesses, however, usually have a very knowledgable, invested staff who are committed to helping you with your purchase. Whether it’s helping you pick out the perfect chandelier for your home at our own A. Dodson’s or selecting the yummiest bottle of wine at Bon Vivant, local business employees are up for the challenge!
Perhaps, in fact, you do know some great workers at Big Box, but there is something unique, even a bit magical, about local business employees and their passion for the products they’re selling. Speaking of jobs, small businesses provide the most employment across the nation. By making your purchases locally, you can do your part to combat high uneployment in your community. These are just a few of the many benefits of supporting local businesses. We’d love to hear what your favorite part of buying local is! Be sure to share your ideas on our Facebook page. See ya around the neighborhood!
