Purpose of LoveToBuyLocal.com
Love To Buy Local was a program whose primary goal was to benefit and educate the communities in which it operated. It was designed to promote local businesses and encourage them to cooperate to strengthen their local communities. Educating the general public about the positive benefits of BUYING LOCAL, means more local dollars will be kept in the community, and the stronger the community becomes. When we spend our money locally, jobs are created and there is a positive economic impact that outweighs the "low price" and “convenience” of big chains & franchise stores. We wanted to educate average consumers to shop the way small business owners do - by supporting local businesses & their community.
Current State of our Program:
In our attempts to accomplish the goals set forth in this program, the program evolved and has gone through several metamorphoses. Unfortunately, it has not received the support needed from the local business owners or the community to succeed in its current state at this time. So we have decided to pause the program for now. The program has not been abolished, but rather is in hiatus for now until we can develop a platform that can survive financially and be a benefit to both local businesses and customers.
