Why Buy Local

Buy Local Go Local

By choosing local and independent businesses for your services, shopping, dining and other needs, you not only get real value and personal service, you're helping:

BUILD COMMUNITY!

The casual encounter you enjoy at neighborhood—scale businesses and the public spaces around them build relationships and community cohesiveness. They're the ultimate social networking sites!

STRENGTHEN YOUR LOCAL ECONOMY!

Each dollar you spend at independent businesses returns 3 times more money to your local economy than one spent at a chain – a benefit we all can bank on.

CREATE JOBS AND OPPORTUNITIES!

Not only do independent businesses employ more people directly per dollar of revenue, they also are the customers of local printers, accountants, wholesalers, farms, attorneys, etc., expanding opportunities for local entrepreneurs.

GIVE BACK TO YOUR COMMUNITY!

Small businesses donate more than twice as much per sales dollar to local non-profits, events, and teams compared to big businesses. We are a supporter of ABATE of Indiana, a non-profit, safety educational, charitable and advocacy motorcyclist organization. Also support and donate to local poker runs and many other events. We are also a supporter of INTERLAKE (Lynnville, IN.) Riding Area. This is a designated area for ORV and other shared usages. Interlake is approximately 3550 acres of land with three separate areas of mining and reclamation. From steep rugged spoil banks to rolling hilly grasslands, man-made lakes and final cut strip pits, Interlake is a diverse array of topography and scenic views.
