Promote Roanoke by Shopping Locally

- Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Living in an apartment in Roanoke, you know what a special community this is. Support your local community and local economy by shopping locally. Why should you shop local? Because it promotes the small businesses  in our community and helps keep money in our local economy.  Did you know that locally owned businesses keep more of their revenue in the local economy than big box stores? Additionally,  supporting small businesses in Roanoke supports local jobs. When you buy local you help Roanoke thrive and keeps business in our downtown.

Buy small items, gifts or make larger purchases in locally owned stores.  You will get more customer service and better store policies when you shop local too.

The heartbeat of Roanoke is the local businesses that are run by entrepreneurs. Our country thrives off of small businesses. As a nation, small businesses fuel our economic prosperity.
