Shop Local. Buy Local.

Did you know that for every $100 spent by a customer, a local business would return $68 to the local economy while a chain store will return only $43?* And $0 gets spent if you order from Amazon.

Local businesses support each other. Booksellers typically purchase goods from other local businesses and services from a local accountant and hire residents. Sale taxes come home to work. The taxes collected by a local independent bookstore support your schools, social services and public agencies.
