VNA Website - Why Shop Local

ROLL YOUR DOLLARS OVER AT HOME

We owe it to our friends and family to keep all of the money we spend working for us here at home.
If local dollars were spent with Vegreville merchants, our standard of living would be better and our community would be more prosperous.

One of the most common and least sensible form of giving is the making of donations to the growth of other communities.
Experts say that every dollar you spend turns over up to seven times.
That means that a dollar spent somewhere else will take away $7 in trade, wages, local taxes and many other benefits.

It’s simple economics.

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN

Do big cities support our local sports teams, children’s activities, fairs, cultural events & more? Of course not! So who does?
Local merchants are the same people who act as coaches, volunteers & more.
These merchants donate money & many hours and a great deal of effort to building a stronger & better community for everyone.

Think about it! Do you want your money supporting activities in some other city?

DON’T DRY OUT YOUR LOCAL ECONOMY

Our local economy is a fragile environment and needs constant replenishment. Shopping locally is an important factor in keeping the services that we all enjoy.
Why desert your home town to spend your money in the big city when dollars spent locally help enhance the communities in which we live, work and play?
Let’s all keep our heads out of the sand and realize the best bargains are right here at home.

Thanks for shopping in locally.
