Be sure to patronize your local businesses right here in Stafford.  Not only will you be helping your local economy, but you will receive personal service and a unique shopping experience.
Here are a few good reasons to shop locally:

  • Locally owned businesses build strong communities by sustaining vibrant town centers, linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships, and contributing to local causes.
  • Local ownership ensures that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions.
  • Compared to chain stores, locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share of their revenue back into the local economy, enriching the whole community.
  • Locally owned businesses create more jobs locally and, in some sectors, provide better wages and benefits than chains do.
  • Local stores in town centers require comparatively little infrastructure and make more efficient use of public services relative to big box stores and strip shopping malls.
  • A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based, not on a national sales plan, but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, guarantees a much broader range of product choices.
