Because we not only grow plants, we also handpick fresh plant stock two to three times each week, This allows us to support small local growers. Rather than buying 50 cacti from one commercial grower, we enjoy the connection we have with small business owners.
In fact, several studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally-owned business significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers, and farms. As a result, continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community.
Since our home is where we shop, where we eat, learn and have fun. One-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of Eustis, Florida. It’s what distinguishes from between being here at our facility, versus a big chain department store. Also, small local businesses are the largest employer nationally, and in our community, provide the most jobs to residents. Therefore, let’s encourage more start-ups! Because local businesses often hire people with a better understanding of the products they are selling and take more time to get to know customers.
Due to locally owned businesses being able to make more local purchases there is less transportation. As a result, this generally means contributing less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss, and pollution. Furthermore, local businesses are owned by your friends and neighbors who live in this community, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in the community’s future. Much as, local businesses mean a stronger tax base and more efficient use of public services as compared to nationally- owned stores entering the community. Because this means better public services like schools, transportation, emergency response and more for you and your family.
