2013 Small Business Week at Adrian’s Boutique

20 05 2013

This is National Small Business Week and Adrian’s Boutique is celebrating 30 years as a locally owned business in downtown Buhler, Kansas. We are so grateful to our clients who have supported us, grown with us and continue to shop with us! Adrian’s has partnered with SIX other outstanding local businesses to bring awareness of the benefits of Shopping small businesses in our community. You really do BIG things when you SHOP SMALL!

Why Shop Local?

 When you shop at an independently owned business, your entire community benefits

The Economy

  • Spend $100 at a local business and $68 of that stays in your community. Spend the same $100 at a national chain, and your community only sees $43.
  • Local businesses create higher-paying jobs for our neighbors.
  • More of your taxes are reinvested in your community–where they belong.

The Environment

  • Buying local means less packaging, less transportation, and a smaller carbon footprint.
  • Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money to beautify your community.

The Community

  • Local retailers are your friends and neighbors—support them and they’ll support you.
  • Local businesses donate to charities at more than twice the rate of national chains.
  • More independents means more choice, more diversity, and a truly unique community.
