CAN YOU NAME ……

Old Town Flowers
3 independently owned businesses that you would miss
if they disappeared or even realized they were there to begin with? Ask yourself… Can you even name 3 independent businesses you have shopped in the past month?

Take a minute, Stop in. Say hello. Pick up something that brings a smile. Your purchases are what keep those businesses around.

If half the employed population spent $50 each month in locally owned,independent businesses it would generate more then $42.6 billion in revenue.

For every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes,payroll and other expenditures.

    Sad to say there are only THREE left and I shop at all three. The local bookstore, small, unique gift shop, and a linens store. All the others have gone. Sadly.
