Help Small Independent Shops!

I read about this on Lulu & Tutz's blog. You can click on the image to go to the website for the project.

Think of 3 independently owned stores you would miss if they were gone.

Stop in and buy something because your purchases are what keeps these businesses around.

For every $100 you spend in an independent store, $68 of it stays in the local community. In a national chain, only $43 stays.

For more info click on the image above.

Where will you be going to help support your local community?

I scooped this up and sent it in a fax to a batch of my PA retail customers today--about 200 or so--and sent it to my wholesalers and rep company's main office--this is great. Thanks for finding it and spreading the word.
Can't wait to meet you--when are you sending your app?? ;)

This is so exciting, exactly why I posted it! I hope it keeps spreading!!

(P.S. Trying to figure out scheduling....I don't think I can be there in May to set up, but possibly in June. Even if I don't set up, I will probably be out to check it out in May!)
