Buying local has its benefits.
Small-scale, locally owned businesses create communities that are more prosperous, connected, and generally better off across a wide range of metrics. When we buy from independent, locally owned businesses, rather than national chains, a significantly greater portion of our money is then cycled back through our local economy — to make purchases from our friends’ businesses, to aid our neighbours in need, and to support our local farms, ultimately strengthening the base of our whole community.
Buy Local Creston is bought to you by the following local businesses.
