I thought I'd share something that's been on my mind quite a bit lately. As the hustle and bustle of back to school begins, I want to encourage you and yours to shop local as much as possible. There are lots of reasons why we all should shop local and here are a few reasons that I think are most important:
Our Parks & Trails Local businesses like ours contribute quite a bit in local taxes to ensure that our parks, swimming pools, recreation areas, trails, and open spaces are the best they can be for us all to enjoy. Big box stores, online stores, and other chain stores do not support your parks, trails, open spaces, etc. in this way...this is probably why their prices can appear to be a little cheaper.
Our Public Services Police and fire stations are non-negotiable....we have to have them but we know that we've got to pay for them while big-box and online stores do not.
Our Neighbors in Need We look forward to contributing to community charitable organizations because we look at it as helping our friends, families, and neighbors. I don't think the big-box and online stores are even close to contributing directly to those who need help in the same proportion that we do.
Our Schools I grew up in this community, graduated from Boulder High. My kids graduated from Fairview. My grandson will be entering a BVSD school before we know it. Our store has donated to just about every school in this community over the years and we won't stop any time soon. I don't think the big-box and online stores can say the same thing.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. On behalf of all of the Green Vests, we really do appreciate your patronage!
Now on to the rest of our newsletter! See you soon,
