It's important to shop where you live

By Staff
Susan Hines, Chamber Chatter
What should we do? Where is the money going to come from? Where is everyone spending his or her money? Why is it so important for me to shop where I live?
Shopping where you live is not just important, it is vital to your community. When you shop locally you are supporting your city and county. Right?
Well, that is only a small part of the story. The big picture is that by supporting the businesses in our area you are helping them to support your friends, neighbors and family. You are supporting the businesses that support your schools, pay tax dollars to your city and invest in your city with buildings, landscaping and other improvements. Our local mom and pop businesses provide jobs that allow their employees and those they contract with to put food on the table and clothes on their backs.
It is imperative that we support the businesses in our community. Remember that shopping the Hartselle area first for your needs keeps us growing. By supporting the businesses we now have, we encourage future growth and expansion of our area, thereby making the Hartselle area more appealing to new development. Growth equals more jobs, an increased tax base, and greater opportunities for all of us.
I encourage you to shop the Hartselle area first and support those who are and have been supporting and growing the Hartselle area for so long.
As your chamber we are the tie that binds, the voice of the business community, the constant factor, and your 24-hour a day promoter. Your chamber has to be a creative and innovative entity; providing member services, acting as a central information center, and an ambassador for all municipalities.
For information regarding membership in the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce, please call 773-4370.
