Why Shop Local?
When we go shopping, we typically choose to do business where we perceive the best value for our time and money. But in that decision have you considered the value of locally owned small businesses? Let’s talk numbers:
- - In San Francisco more than half of all employees (54%) work at a small business That means small businesses employ more than 355,000 people.
- - Local small businesses put nearly 2 ½ times the amount of money back into the local economy when compared to national chains.
- - If small businesses income increased 10% in San Francisco that would mean the addition of $200 million in economic activity and create 1300 new jobs.
Now consider the real cost of losing locally-owned small businesses – local values. In a city known or chastised for its “values,” it’s the local business owners that support local charities, sit on local boards, elect local officials and even challenge City Hall.
And when you think of your favorite restaurant, café or shop – is it a national chain? Not likely! It’s the local merchant who went the extra mile. It is the restaurant whose food and service is off the chart. It’s the “only in San Francisco” element that makes them so special.
