Why should you buy local Michigan products #2?


Today we will be talking about how buying local can effect charitable contributions.  Someone might think large box stores like Wal-Mart and Target have such deep pockets that they must donate a considerable amount to the communities they are located within.  Well, the truth is the exact opposite.  Locally owned businesses actually contribute more than their national counterparts.  In a study conducted by the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, Wal-Mart only contributed $1,000 per $1,000,000 in sales compared to local businesses contributing $4,000 per $1,000,000 in sales.  One more of the many reasons to buy local.

We can make a difference!  Michigan residents must realize this and consider buying locally whenever possible.  Here's to you . . . .  here's to our Great Lake State of Michigan!!

Buy Local!
