Why is it important to shop locally?
It supports your local community by shopping locally, you are directly contributing to your local community helping it to thrive. Otherwise, you will most probably be supporting a giant chain, meaning your local businesses will suffer. By supporting local businesses, you are in turn helping your local economy by creating more jobs. The more we support them, the more jobs will be created and the better off our local communities will be. Another of the great things about independent businesses is that they’re run by dedicated people, and you will likely get to know them and they have interesting stories as to how their stores came to be. Every time you buy you are making a difference in the lives of many.
That’s why I continuously promoting and supporting local brands, artisans, artists, and especially newbie entrepreneurs like me based in Finland. Check the video below- Featuring the local makers/artists/businesses.
We are excited to add brands or products that are in line with our values and mission to sell products that bring joy to all and a sustainable livelihood to the community. It was nice to be out again and meet new customers in person, the passionate makers and dedicated sellers who participated last Thursday. We pray that this pandemic continues be fade and we can back to normal 110%.
