Support local, it gives back

Better Customer Service
When you are dealing with a local business you don’t sit on hold with a call center or jump through hoops to get questions answered. Staff at local businesses care about their community and the people in it. They will take extra time to go out of their way to help you in any way possible. Plus, there is no lousy hold music on repeat.
Unique Services and Products
A local business knows their community and what it needs. Local businesses can adapt quickly and cater to the needs of the community at a quicker pace than a big box or online store. An advantage of working with local businesses is they can personalize their services for you.
