Why shop local this holiday season?
Keep Your Money in Hendricks County: Shopping at locally owned businesses means that more money stays in Hendricks County and the surrounding area. Local businesses often make purchases from other local businesses and services, so doing your shopping locally can help multiple area businesses grow and thrive.
Unique Local Items: From specialty boutique clothing to handcrafted (and even customized!) jewelry to the perfect coffee mug, you’ll find something for everyone in Hendricks County. If you’re shopping for “the person who has everything” you can’t go wrong with a handcrafted gift or food item! The local element adds a nice personal touch whether you’re purchasing gifts for local family and friends, out of town visitors, or you’re the one traveling to a different location to celebrate the holidays.
Support Local Non Profits: Non profits typically receive more support from local business owners than they do from other businesses. From donating a percentage of profits to providing snacks or materials for a fundraising event, local businesses often make it a priority to support causes that they believe in.
Go Green: Making local purchases means less driving, less packaging, and less overall environmental impact.
No Waiting: When you shop locally, you can purchase your gifts and bring them home right away. There’s no need to worry about an item being backordered or misdelivered.
Great Customer Service: Local business owners care about you and want you to shop with them. They’ll often take the time to answer all of your questions, provide great advice when you’re searching for the perfect gift for that special someone, and greet you with a smile. There’s something really special about shopping local.
