WHY Lapeers Best
DID YOU KNOW?
When you buy small, you're helping a local company stay profitable and encouraging growth. A growing small business can afford to take on additional employees, reducing unemployment rates in your area. The SBA (Small Business Association) estimates that small business owners create two out of every three net new jobs in the U.S. That number could go up if consumers shifted just 10 percent of their business to local organizations.
WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
Unemployment precedes poverty. Not only does it cost more to be poor, neighborhoods start to decline as occupants are strapped for money to maintain their homes. Crime rates increase. So do your local taxes as they increase to pay for more law enforcement and social services.
By patronizing local businesses today and beyond, you're also creating more job opportunities for friends, family and neighbors. That means they likely won't be hitting you up for a loan down the road.
Our mission is to provide information about the benefits of supporting locally owned small businesses deserving of your trust and to encourage the confidence for our community to come together with the common goal of energizing our local economy.
