The new trend is to shop local, supporting small businesses. Eagerly looking for farm-fresh organic items or a wholesome cup of coffee you cannot start the day without. While searching for the best quality, it is also the desire to help business owners in your very own community. But did you know that where you decide to shop impacts both the economy and environment?
With the holiday season approaching, the big box stores compete for your business with super-saving deals or quirky 30 second commercials. E-commerce giants entice you to shop with ease and beat the crowds. Yet, the spending-cycle is important to be aware of as you determine where to spend your money in preparation for the holidays. Independent local businesses recirculate a far greater percentage of local revenue compared to corporate-owned businesses (chains or franchises). In other words, going local creates more local wealth and jobs. Importantly, buying local is a chance to support resident artists and small business owners who take great pride in their work. It gives you the opportunity to experience handmade, one-of-a-kind and meaningful gifts, and support your community.
A generous amount of waste in the USA is generated by the large commercial companies. Shopping locally helps cut down on processing, packaging and transportation waste, leading to less pollution.
At Zipp Printing we enjoy supporting our local community in what we do. From printing special promotional pieces down to the everyday needs for local businesses. It is our goal to bring quality service to whoever calls. Over the course of 30 years we have had the pleasure of working side-by-side with the people in Michiana (even those outside the immediate region). It’s through shopping local that we get to know the unique people who make our community a great place to call home.
Zipp Printing is proud of our community and those hard working people we get to serve!
Shop quality. Shop local.
