Lace Up Local
Where you buy matters. Locally owned stores are more than just the corner store. They are the foundation of our economy. The places where communities unite… and ideas thrive. They account for 75% of all new jobs and employ over half of all workers in America. They reinvest in the local economy at a 60% higher rate than chains.
Every dollar you spend at a local business creates 3 1/2 times more local economic benefit than dollars spent at a chain or online. Make your purchases matter. Put your money where your house is and support your friends and neighbors.
