Hi there

Thank you for subscribing to PEILOCAL Buy Local News

In recent years, a shift in the thinking of consumers has taken place. It’s a shift that is taking consumers focus away from the large, impersonal big-box retailers and introduces them to the people doing business in their very own local communities. These are local farmers, craftsmen, antiques dealers, and other product providers, with items made locally and sold on a smaller scale.

When a consumer supports his local business owners, he enjoys benefits he can’t possibly get from shopping at national chains. Here are some top reasons to support your PEI Local Businesses.

Improve your family’s health.
Buying local foods has numerous health benefits to your family. When you buy from local farmers, you have access to healthier foods and the impact on less food transport fosters a healthier environment for everyone.


Improve the local economy.
When a consumer buys local, significantly more of that money stays in the community. In fact, studies find that local businesses recirculate a greater share of every dollar in the local economy, as they create locally owned supply chains and invest in their employees.

Local business owners often have incentive to support other local businesses, patronizing local establishments for both business and personal reasons. Chain businesses, on the other hand, tend to get their supplies from corporate, as well as having store managers and employees that aren’t as personally invested in buying local.

Thank you for your support of locally owned business on PEI!
