American Independent Business Alliance

Go Local for Valentine’s Day!

About 60% of people in North America make Valentine’s Day purchases each year, totaling about $20 billion. In most communities, great gifts are available from independent restaurants, florists, galleries, jewelers and other local businesses — most of which compete directly against chains and online giants. This makes the preceding weeks a great time to convey the value of “going local” as shifting even a small percentage of that spending to local independents can yield a big boost for your community.
