Support Neighbor Owned Businesses

A little goes a long way. What happens when you shift just a small amount of your shopping dollars toward independently-owned businesses? You improve the economy - local businesses put more money back into the community than chain stores. Help local businesses expand & grow - they create jobs or preserve jobs. Help the environment - you'll reduce your carbon footprint. If every household in Chicago shifted $365.00 annually, the impact would approach $100,000,000.00.
