Buying Local

You’ve probably heard that buying goods and services locally helps retain more dollars in our local economy, this is a fact.  But did you know that some of the large companies online are not even based in the U.S. and they pay no federal or state taxes, employ none of our citizens, not to mention eat away at our tax base?

I recently attended a convention and was surprised to see that there were many foreign companies attending that were there simply to sell dealerships to U.S. companies so they could sell here without the cost or risk we have to take on. When you can, make it a point to buy local, ask and find out where the products are made and educate yourself about your choices, our small dollars all add up.
