  • 57% of shoppers said keeping money local was a primary driver for shopping small and indeed, 48 cents of every dollar spent at a small business recirculates in the local community;
  • 28% of shoppers say they get better customer service at small businesses; and
  • 75% of small businesses support charities, something that is increasingly appealing to a growing base of conscious consumers.
