I’m so pleased we have put together this special section to spotlight our local businesses and the reasons you should spend your hard-earned money with them.
Working with and promoting local businesses has always been my passion within the publishing world. I spend my days talking to owners of shops and boutiques, restaurants and bars, real estate and finance firms, medical and wellness practices, service and trade providers and so many others. I’m consistently impressed by how they take care of their customers, employees and property with the genuine care that comes with pride in serving your neighbors and community.
Shopping local not only buys you a better experience, it also spreads the wealth within the Greater Prescott community. Local merchants spend their money within the community beyond their payroll by contracting with local services and suppliers. They hire local accountants and consultants, get their cars fixed by nearby mechanics and have their events catered by kitchens that buy produce at our farmers markets, stores and ranches.
Local business owners support local schools and nonprofits because they serve the owners and employees, their families, friends and neighborhoods. They’ve seen these groups’ results firsthand and know the value of seeing them continue to thrive. They sit on their boards, hold and contribute to fundraisers and encourage their customers to follow their lead and uplift everyone in the community.
This is why we care so much about where you shop and why this Shop Local section is filled with businesses delivering these benefits to you and everyone else who lives in or visits Greater Prescott!
