WHY SHOP LOCAL FIRST?
LOCAL isn’t just the address on the front of your business. It’s the people and places that make Three Hills home: your neighbors and their families, their businesses, farms, nonprofits, events, and recreational venues. LOCAL is people and all of the opportunities and challenges we face every day. It’s a passion for working together to create a sustainable community now and into the future.
MORE MONEY STAYS IN THE COMMUNITY
More money stays in the community…For every $100.00 you spend in Three Hills, approximately $68.00 will stay in the Three Hills.
LOCAL JOBS ARE CREATED AND SUSTAINED
Local businesses are better at creating higher-paying jobs for your neighbors.
Further, when you shop locally, you help create jobs for teachers, firemen, police officers, and many other essential professions.
THE LOCAL COMMUNITY AND ECONOMY ARE STRONGER
The local community and economy are strengthened…Non-profit organizations receive an average 250% more support from smaller business owners than they do from large businesses. The businesses you support, support your community!
CUSTOMER SERVICE IS ENHANCED
When you personally know the people behind the business where you’re buying local products and services, you enjoy a connection you would not otherwise have.
KEEP YOUR COMMUNITY UNIQUE
The more interesting and unique Three Hills remains, the more we will attract new neighbors, visitors and guests. This benefits everyone!
Buying from a locally owned business conserves energy and resources in the form of less fuel for transportation and less packaging.
