Why buy local?
68% of your dollar spent with a locally owned business stays in the community...
...compared to only 43% when you shop at a national chain store.
*Use other local businesses-- like banks, printers, etc.
*Donate more to community causes than chains.
*Make your community unique and interesting, attracting visitors and new neighbors.
*Make use of existing buildings, preserving New Albany's heritage.
*Are really your neighbors, determined to serve you.
*Provide tax revenues that support our community, especially compared to online stores.
