Geauga County Local Businesses

Why is supporting local businesses so important?

1. They create more jobs locally .

2. The impact on the environment is reduced due to less development from the large chains, and less transportation to and from the business.

3. Small businesses tend to support small non-profit organizations in your community more than the large businesses.

4. Small businesses have the ability to spend more time getting to know their customers and provide better customer service.

5. Money spent in small town companies typically stays within the community.

6. Many small businesses offer a better variety in services and products, creating a one-of-a-kind experience and giving the town it’s own unique character.

7. Tax dollars that the local businesses pay are used for many things including the financing of roads, public schools, sidewalks, and parks. In addition, those tax dollars help to fund additional public service workers such as police officers and firefighters.
