Sunday Reflection: I Took the Pledge

Sunday Reflection: Took the Pledge

I am passionate about supporting independently owned businesses. Long before I became an independent business owner, I loved spending any free time I had going to locally owned shops and restaurants. I did it because they offered better quality and service. Today I continue to frequent independently owned businesses for far more reasons. Independents are the heart and soul of a community. They are a vital source of jobs and revenue to the local economy. But perhaps more importantly, they are where many of our valued memories and traditions are made and preserved.

Independent We Stand is an organization dedicated to educating communities about the importance of supporting local businesses. Their website is full of information and resources for both the independent business owner and and consumer.

 I took the pledge to join their mission. Will you?
