With so many of our local businesses being impacted by COVID-19, shopping local is now more important than ever! Over the next two weeks, you are going to have a chance to meet some local makers showcased at Simplicity Natural Foods and hear their stories on how they started. You will notice each maker is holding a sign that says #shoplocalmovement
We want to start a movement in Espanola and the surrounding area. We want all the locals and local businesses to get involved. We want people to stop and think about where they are shopping and who they are supporting. We have so many wonderful local businesses and makers all around us. Together we can keep our communities strong.
Shopping local fun facts:
1. For every dollar you spend $.067 goes back into your community.
2. You are supporting your neighbors, not a corporation of people you don’t know.
3. It’s easier on our environment, you can walk or ride a bike to local businesses. You don’t have to travel out of town.
4. You are investing in your community. Local businesses give back, they sponsor local activities and donate to local charities.
Let’s create a shop local movement together!
Stay tuned for our first maker, I hope you love these as much as I do. It’s so beautiful to hear everyone’s story.
