So.. Why choosing a locally owned business?
1. Improve Local Economy.
This is especially true for locally owned businesses because the money stays with the community. When you support locally owned businesses, you are helping them to hire local workers which improves both unemployment rates and local economy. Thus, some of the money that we receive ultimately goes right back into the local community.
2. Superior Customer Service.
Locally owned business tend to be a lot more selective when it comes to hiring members of their staff. Owners often seek out individuals that believe in their company, and that would represent their brand. Employees, being members of the community, are often much more personal and friendly. This is even more accurate when it comes to family-owned business. Ever walk in to a family-owned business and were treated like you were part of the family? That’s a special quality that we tend to have, and that a lot of mountaineers appreciate.
3. Quality Services/Flexible Pricing.
Locally owned business often have direct control over the pricing of their service. This means that they can manage their prices and offer the best price for a better service. The quality of services also tends to be better at locally owned companies because owners knows every little details on the field.
