REASONS TO SHOP LOCALLY

Here's justification to spend more of your money locally and help your local economy and community to grow:

For every dollar spent in the community, the break down shows how much is
retained/re-circulated/reinvested in the community:
       Big Box Retailer (Lowes, Wal-Mart, etc)= .06
       Chain Store (Catos, Fred's, etc) = .20
       Sole Proprietorship = .60

These stats are according to the Small Business Administration and passed
along through Main Street Arkansas.
