Today I would like to talk about supporting local businesses. KSLA has started an initiative to encourage shoppers to keep it local. Spending your money with stores right here in our area ensures that more of that money stays right here in the Ark-La-Tex.
I have seen statistics supporting that community-based businesses are essential to the sustaining charitable organizations. And doesn’t that make sense? Those local owners, managers and employees live and raise their families here. So wouldn’t they be more likely to invest in our community? Think about the business owners you know who serve on a local board or support a cause that helps others.
That is why is so important that we support them, and we can do this by shopping here.
So remember to keep it local and check out what local merchants have to offer.
