Did you know that 48 cents of every dollar spent/made at a locally owned retail business goes back into the local community. That is more than 3 times the amount that local communities get from chain retailers (Civic Economics’ 2012 survey of local businesses)
Local businesses have generated 65% of the country’s new jobs for over the past 17 years (US Small Business Administration)
With these amazing stats you should think twice about Walmart, or any major chain that is basically just a reseller for China.
