Why Shop Local by Petra Geiger

Hop over to the Beehive Co-Op Blog and read a really great post by Petra Geiger, the founding force behind the co-op. It's an interesting commentary about how money spent at small businesses vs. big box businesses is circulated differently within the local economy. Go take a look and tell me what you think!

It is very interesting! Now that I'm a small business owner myself, I'm definitely become a huge supporter of local businesses. I just twitted this article. Thanks for sharing!

Shopping locally is soooo important. As a small business owner I do everything I can to support fellow local businesses. My motto is: Do something local every day!
