Buy local, build economy
I was pleased to see Patrick Butler's letter asking readers to "bring change and buy local," supporting our local business owners. I would like to emphasize another reason to do so: the multiplier effect.
When you spend a dollar at a locally owned business, that dollar is likely to circulate several times in our community, multiplying its impact on the local economy, while a dollar spent at a large chain business will likely leave the area after that one transaction.
