we firmly believe that being “healthy” not only includes having a healthy mind and body, but also a healthy community. in order to have a healthy community, we must make sure our dollars stay within that community so that local businesses thrive. shopping local sometimes may not be the cheapest or the most convenient, but in the long-run it usually is the best decision.
THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE is to find a local alternative that you haven’t tried yet. it may be choosing a local sandwich shop over a national chain, buying supplies at a local hardware store vs. a big box store or just stopping in somewhere you haven’t been before and checking out what they have to offer. i am sure any of these businesses would love to see a new face and earn your future business. we support our local businesses, do you? tell us where you go!
