Support Local Businesses in Upstate SC

It is amazing to me that so many people still do not support the businesses that have picked their towns to open and bring jobs to the local people.  These businesses felt that these communities needed something more in there area so, they invest the money and basically trust in the fact that the community will support that business so that it can thrive.

So, why don't we give local businesses more business?  Is it because generally they are more expensive? Many times it is because the retailers can offer goods that we can justify in our minds to be comparable to what the locally owned business offers; not so much, why, becuase the locally owned businesses hand pick each item based on what the consumer wants, does it cost more, probably so, but, at the end of the day, the appreciation from these businesses will be worth it by being able to offer more local people jobs!

I know the economy has been tough and every cent we can save, we do because, there are many people that are still very insecure based on the past 2-3 years. In order for our local economies to get better we need to support local businesses! Even if it is just one item a week; it will make a difference.
