California Small Business and You
CalSmallBiz is a charitable mutual benefit effort designed to increase public awareness about the significance of “buying local” upon California’s economy well-being, and how the condition of small businesses in a community directly affects people where they work, play, and live.
Buying Local Supports Local
California small businesses employ 4 out of every 5 workers. Both California’s economy and the economy of your local community depends upon the well-being of small businesses.
When you shop at at a small business, most of that money will stay working in your community in the form of shipping, delivery, stocking, marketing, sales and service by local employees; and those employees in turn spend most of their money back in the local community.
But when you buy over the internet, that money leaves the state and does nothing for you or your community.
Avoid Counterfeit and Defective Knock-offs
Small businesses are faster and often better priced than online competitors, especially if you value genuine quality. Because small businesses have loyal local buyers with years worth of relationships, they know customers expect to find the same great values and service each day. In response, small business inventories reliably stock quality merchandise their customers have come to rely upon and demand.
At a local small business you always have a real person to meet with, face to face, who can talk to you about the products and services, and handle any returns. Faceless online retailers ignore your emails, limit you to online chats, make empty promises to you over the phone, and know you won’t fully read their online user agreement which removes many of your consumer rights.
