Three Reasons to Shop Local this Holiday Season

Many people are familiar with Small Business Saturday which highlights the many small businesses across the country each year, but there are so many reasons to shop small and local the entire year, especially during the holiday season.

Here are three reasons to make shopping small in communities like Downtown Clermont a priority this holiday season and beyond:

  1. You Invest in Your Local Economy

    When you shop at a small business in Downtown Clermont, you’re supporting the community through your sales tax. That sales tax is then used to support our schools, parks, roads, and sidewalks and fund public service workers, like police and firefighters.

    Additionally, you’re supporting a real person within the community. Every dollar you spend at one of our local businesses makes a difference to a member of our community and their employees.

  2. Small Businesses Give Back to their Community

    Nearly every small business in our community actively gives back to the Clermont community whether it’s through sponsoring a community event, donating to local charities or patronizing other small businesses in the community.

  3. You can find one-of-a-kind items with personalized service

    Many of the items you can find in our local stores are one-of-a-kind and unique to our area. Whether you’re picking up a Clermont-themed gift at Sunshine Book Co., refilling your growler at Suncreek Brewery, buying a Local Belle t-shirt at The Orange Blossom Belle, or one of our Clermont Main Street shirts, you’re purchasing something that is inherently unique to Clermont. Furthermore, you’re more than a number at our local shops, you’re a valued customer, friend and neighbor.

We hope you and your family will shop small in Downtown Clermont this holiday season and year-round.
