Why shop local?

The smallest of everyday decisions — especially when it comes to the businesses we support, have a significant impact on our community. When you shop locally, you are helping to support neighbors, friends and family.

Strengthening our locally owned business community promotes meaningful relationships between business owners, employees, customers, suppliers, and neighbors. Local businesses recirculate a greater share of their profits in our local economy.

Along with contributing to our community's tax base, Chardon business owners give generously to local charities and support our school activities and sports programs. Local businesses support other local businesses too, so the positive impact on a community is wide-reaching!

Buying local is an investment that we make in our community's long-term health. Make the commitment to always Think Local first!

Thank You For Supporting Local!
