SHOP LOCAL REWARDS PROGRAM
How the program works
Most people like to make a difference when they can, but many don’t realize that
there are financial incentives available to help lower utility bills, make our homes
more comfortable, and reduce our impact on the planet.
Lowering energy use for homes and businesses reduces the amount of harmful
emissions in our environment, and buying from local businesses reduces emissions
associated with transporting goods.
Support Our Local Economy!
Local business generates 70 percent more local economic activity per square foot than
big box retail. – Andersonville Study of Retail Economics
“You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy local, and
sometimes, that’s kind of the same thing!”
How does the program help People?
Locally owned businesses build strong communities by sustaining vibrant town
centers, linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships, and
contributing to local causes.
More jobs for More People
Small businesses are the largest employer in North America.
Local ownership ensures that important decisions are made locally by people who live
in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions.
Shop Local programs are essential to successful independent, local businesses, which contribute to the tax base, bring stability, meet consumer demand, and add vibrancy to a community. – Andrea L. Dono | From Main Street Story of the Week – MainstreetAmerica.com
How does the program help the Planet?
Local stores help to sustain vibrant, compact, walkable town centers-which in turn are essential to
reducing sprawl, automobile use, habitat loss, and air and water pollution.
Community based businesses cut down on processing, packaging and transportation waste, compared
to larger businesses that ship from other regions and sometimes from other countries.
Reduce Urban Sprawl
Locally owned businesses can make more local purchases and generally set up shop in town or city
centers as opposed to developing on the fringe. – sustainableconnections.org
Supporting Beyond Green solar and energy efficiency projects helps keep the Pioneer Valley’s air
clean and beautifies our natural environment.
How does the program help Businesses Profit?
Local Character and Prosperity
A growing body of economic research shows that in an increasingly homogenized world, communities
that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character have an economic advantage.
Keeping Dollars in the Local Economy
Compared to chain stores, locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share of their revenue back
into the local economy, enriching the whole community.
Job and Wages
Small local businesses are the largest employer nationally and in our community, and provide the most
jobs to residents.
A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low
prices over the long-term.
