Make it a Local Valentine's Day | Support your Independently-owned Businesses

Valentine's Day is an important holiday for small retailers. Choosing to spend locally for holidays and important dates is a choice that keeps money in your community. Spending at small businesses and independently-owned retailers matters, especially around the holidays.



Be smart and invest where you live.

This Valentine's Day plan ahead!

Did you make a reservation at a local restaurant yet?
 
Choose to spend at a local florist this Valentine's Day. 
Spending locally invests back into the area where you live.
...and make sure you are using a REAL florist.
 
You don't always know what you are getting when you order online...
   
Go to your downtown family-owned flower shop instead...

Talk to the people who create that perfect bouquet, who care, and who are a part of your community...instead of this.
 
Choose local and support independently-owned retailers.
I'm in love with these graphics from American Independent Business Alliance - and there are many more!

Your long-time family owned bakery is perfect for holiday treats.
Spend with business owners you know!

....do the right thing.
