Live in Sussex, Work in Sussex, Spend in Sussex: 5 Reasons to Choose a Local Business

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

As a customer looking for a product or service you’d be forgiven for assuming that pricing will automatically be higher at a small local business versus one that is large and corporately run, this is regularly a misconception and as a customer you could be missing out on supporting the positive aspects that many local businesses bring to your community. Read on for our top 5 reasons to choose a local Sussex business…

Community sketch
  • Building a Community
    If you own a business, using other local businesses links you in a social and economic web by building lasting relationships within the community. Local businesses often contribute to local causes and support and sponsor local projects, this further builds a strong and prospering community network.
  • Keep Money in the Community
    Locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share of their profits back into the local economy than centrally owned corporate companies, improving and supporting the whole community and its growth.
  • Creating Jobs in the Community
    Locally owned businesses create and recruit more jobs locally as well as the freedom to offer apprenticeship schemes to support school leavers.
  • A Personal Service for the Local Consumer
    ­If you use local independent businesses you’re helping them to tailor their products and services to the needs and preferences of the community, this personalisation helps them to better serve you in a way that large corporate businesses are unable to.
  • Local Decision Making
    Helping local businesses prosper ensures that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community, work in the community, support the community and will feel the impacts of the decisions made.
