No matter where you live right now, people don’t enjoy the idea of losing a sense of community with each other. However, that doesn’t stop national chains and larger corporations from trying to push local businesses out of the market. For small businesses, owners don’t think of them as just businesses; they serve as an extension of who the owner is. Local businesses don’t just want you to spend money on them, they also want to connect with customers and build lasting relationships. These are the types of relationships you want to have budding in your community. If you don’t already support local businesses, here are a few reasons you should consider doing so.
Local Business Create New Jobs
Local businesses are responsible for the creation of two out of every three jobs. Over half of the people in the nation get hired by local businesses, and there have been 5 million jobs made by these businesses since 2003. When you support these local companies, you show your support for steady employment rates. Who knows, you may just help someone who’s looking for work.
Keep Money in the Community
Money that is spent locally is able to be re-spent locally. This improves the economy in that area, resulting in more people’s salaries being paid and establishing a tax base. With money constantly recirculating, more economic activity takes place, and the more money that’s spent, the more economic activity we get.
You Help the Environment
Local businesses don’t take as much fuel and energy to get their products to their customers. Therefore, when you buy locally, you reduce the number of fumes that go into the atmosphere, therefore helping the environment.
Local Businesses Learn How to Serve You
Larger corporations can’t keep up with the number of customers coming through their doors every day. However, workers at local businesses establish deeper relationships with their customers. This lets them figure out how they should serve each customer who visits them. As a result, you tend to get a higher quality of customer service.
Local Businesses Have Plenty of Choices
When buying locally, businesses take their customers’ unique wants into consideration when determining what to order. This means you’re more likely to find something you want at a local business.

With the state of the country as it is, and taking into consideration the safety of our fellow citizens, our showroom is “BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.” We also provide “SHOP AT HOME” service. We will bring samples directly to your home, or should you already know what products you want, we can safely provide you with a “FREE ESTIMATE.” This allows you the flexibility of not having to be at home for us to do an estimate, nor the installation. All we will need to know is what areas in your home we would be doing and how we can gain access (hidden key, lock box, coded entry, realtor, neighbor, etc.). This is tailored around the homeowner who needs to get their unit ready for the season or simply enhancing their home but does not want to leave their home or can’t make it to town (Ocean City, Berlin, Salisbury, Worcester / Wicomico County Maryland & Sussex County Delaware).
This service is not new to us. We have already been providing this service for our customers for the past 24 years.
