When you shop with local merchants, more of your money stays close to home; supporting the parks, recreation centers, libraries and other things that make your community a great place to live.

The immediate goals of the Shop Local Book are:
1) promote local business groups in building a sustainable economy, and
2) assist natural people in growing family businesses.

The Shop Local Book is a grass roots effort designed to connect local business with the local community. This Book is comprised of family businesses and local merchants offering unique products and services around the country.

The Shop Local Book is a 501(C)(3) organization, exemption pending,
with a long term drive of building a global directory containing local merchants,
local services, and local products.
Shop Local Book is a community resource of local vendors and small businesses. Studies conducted in communities show that as people buy from an independent, locally owned business, versus a nationally owned businesses, there is more money left in the community via purchases from other local businesses, service providers, farms, along with other local revenue to infrastructure which all helps to improve the economic base of a community.
