When you shop locally you keep people employed and you help them increase their wages. Those businesses you shop at and their employees in turn spend money locally. Recycling those dollars locally helps the economy stay healthy and grow.
Shopping local also promotes entrepreneurship and community responsibility. Entrepreneurship is the backbone of our country and what helps people become more successful and increase their standard of living. Locally owned businesses tend to feel more of a connection and a responsibility to the area and its residents. They get excited and want to help make the town they live in a better place. Local owners feel pride in their businesses and their neighborhoods. They have more input and care more about decisions that are made about their neighborhoods.
So shop at one of Helena's Most Wanted businesses and help support your family, friends, and neighbors.
