Has the spring(ish) weather got you excited to add some new pieces to your closet? Do you find yourself perusing the plethora of online shops for something to wear to an upcoming summer event?
If you find yourself heading online to shop for soft clothing + lovely things, here are a few reasons to keep it local:
Support the local economy: Not only does shopping local keep your money local, but it provides jobs and opportunities to grow the economy.
Build a sense of community: Small, independent businesses make many donations to local community groups and events. Also, knowledge of who your money is supporting builds a sense of responsibility to your community.
Personal experience: Make shopping an interactive experience. People have a natural affinity for interaction. Socialize. Get opinions and advice from staff.
Try before you buy: No need to fret over complicated returns and shipping. Save yourself the disappointment of your clothing not fitting or looking like the online photo. See it and try it for yourself first! Maybe even try a new trend that you would have never considered.
Product knowledge: You don't have to research yourself! Let the sales associates answer any questions you may have and teach you about new trends and ways to wear different pieces.
Instant gratification: Walk out of the store in your new clothes! No need to wait days, or weeks, to try on your new purchases.
We greatly, greatly appreciate our many dedicated customers who resist the urge and shop local. We love you for shopping local and supporting iceblink!
