Hi all -
Welcome to Local First North Carolina - did you know that locally owned independent business's employee 70% of the US population !!! Well with all that is going on in today's economy we need to keep it or increase that percent - how can we do that??? Buy buying locally first - and then at independently owned vendors second - they most times offer competive prices and much better services than any big box or corporately owned business. You will do a number of great things for your locally economy and community where that business resides - Its a great thing to do - and like I said - they are competitive - most have websites - and they also have a way to contact if you want to barter, or discuss pricing - give it a try -
There are so many ways to help our struggling economy with buying local - I will be posting new links etc so you can check it out -
There are Local first movements all across the country - I'll be providing those links as well - one place to start is at: www.indiebound.org at this website you can locate many indie business's - add a business if you like and shop till you drop !!
More info to follow - comment please !!! ask questions !!
Thanks for listening -
