Cloots Auto Body vs Large Chains
Going to large chains instead of locally owned businesses that serve Southwick, weakens the local economy. This is because local stores recycle a much larger share of their sales revenue back into the area where you live. Chains siphon most of the dollars spent at their stores out of the community, funneling them back to corporate headquarters or to distant suppliers. Several studies have been done to show the added economic benefit of local stores and shops in the Southwick area.
Contribute to the Southwick Community:
- Local Payroll—Locally owned businesses spent a larger share of their revenue on local labor (29 vs. 23 percent) because they carried out all management functions on-site, rather than at corporate headquarters.
- Procurement—Local retailers spent more than twice as much buying goods and services from other local businesses. They banked locally; hired local accountants, attorneys, designers, and other professionals; advertised in local media; and sourced inventory from local firms.
- Profits—Because we live in the area, a larger portion of the local retailer’s profits stayed within the local economy.
- Charitable Giving—The local retailers donated more on average to local charities and community organizations than the chains did.
Added dollars circulating in the local economy translate into a larger number and wider variety of available jobs. The implications of the local premium for how cities approach economic development are significant. Not only do big-box stores eliminate more retail jobs than they create, but they reduce local economic activity and job creation in other sectors. Conversely, expanding local businesses generates substantially greater economic benefits.
