Why Shop Local in Barton County Missouri
Not only do independent local businesses employ more people directly per dollar of revenue they earn, they also are the customers of local printers, accountants, wholesalers, farms, attorneys, etc., expanding opportunities for local entrepreneurs.

Additionally, according to "The Multiplier Effect" (click here), each dollar you spend at independent businesses returns 3 times more money to your local economy than one spent at a chain (hundreds of times more than buying from an online mega-retailer) — a benefit we all can bank on! 

And it goes without saying that our local independent businesses help give our community its distinct personality. Not to mention that local businesses donate more than twice as much per sales dollar to local non-profits, events, and teams according to study for the Small Business Administration.
