Variety is the Key to Local!

Logo of Shop Local Raleigh with orange text, purple Downtown Raleigh skyline and bright yellow/green arrow circling the logo.

We know it’s sometimes just plain easier to stop at that big box shop and get everything you need in one stop… but is your gift personalized, did you receive excellent customer service, were you wowed and compelled to write a glorified review about how special the experience was? Not so much?  Well we believe you can get the experience of better customer service, finding gifts that are just what you were looking for and leave you wowed and wanting to write a review!

When you shop local, 51.1% of every dollar you spend is recirculated in our local economy compared to only 13.6% with a national big box store. So next time you think it’s easier to just make one stop, think about your community- the investment you are making and how really in the long run, you may not be saving any time or money by going to just one place.

Shop Local and Independent today and keep more of your hard earned money right here!
