At the core of each community live the business owners, the “mom and pop” risk takers who build independent retail to serve their neighbors.
Small businesses impact local economics through sales tax, property taxes and employment. The independent retailers help create the flavor and character unique to their town. Locally owned businesses typically offer better personal service, support area nonprofit organizations and have less environmental impact. This week while we celebrate the 4th of July remember why local businesses are critical to our local prosperity. Shop local and you help keep Knoxville unique.
Happy 4th of July! We are truly grateful to all those who help us stay independent.
