Admit it. You grew up eating corn out of a can. If you were born in the 60’s or 70’s you probably ate a ton of canned goods.
But today you most likely buy your fruit and vegetables fresh. And local if available.
Fresh and local.
When you were a teen, going to the Mall was an event. You would eat in the food court and walk the halls of big stores that were lined up beside one another. And then you went to a giant movie theater to see The Breakfast Club, until your parents came to pick you up.
But today, you are reminded by your kids to shop locally. They remind you how “big box” stores are the enemy and filled with corporate greed. You’ve realized that you too own a small business and you want others locally to support your mission.
But having realized all of that. Where do you buy the printed materials for your business?
Do you go to the national chain stores for paper, pens and staples? Do you buy your business cards online? Are you really saving by designing your flyers, banners and postcards with some algorithm filled with clip art and stock images? How much time and money are you really saving? What is the quality like?
While the corporate offices or service desk might ask you to believe that they are local to Framingham or Waltham; the printers that are shipping on their behalf, are often located outside of the country in Canada.
For every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community. What happens when you spend that same $100 at a national chain? Only $43 stays in the community.*
