There is no shortage of those who try to work for themselves and start businesses that allow them to be their own boss and work an honest job in the community. However, it is increasingly difficult for those small business owners to continually have the type of community support and customer increases that help to keep them solvent and successful. It is really so important that those of us in the community spend our dollars wisely by investing in these small business owners and helping them to see their dreams come true. There are large scale, roofing conglomerates that you can hire to come and re roof your home for you, but that money that you spend will go outside of this community and it will be lost to us. Or instead you could hire a Denver roofer who is trying to make a small business work, and the money that you pay for that roofer will stay in the community and help to increase our tax base. While the larger conglomerate from out of town may be able to charge you less than the local Denver roofer, the benefits of paying a bit more to a locally owned small business are clear and easy to understand. You will in effect be hiring local workers who need jobs and are willing to work hard for them. And the money that you spend on the local roofing team will remain in the community, being spent at local grocery stores and convenience stores, counted as local income and generating income taxes that go to support local schools and education programs, as well as arts and museums and any number of other community needs.
By focusing on the good that we can do with our dollars in our own community, we are able to see the benefit of spending a little more and buying local and helping to grow our own economy instead of an economy in a city far away from us. These are just a few reasons why it would always be a better choice to support local Denver roofers instead of saving money to hire a larger roofing company from outside the state. This same argument holds true for all other types of businesses, weather it be the local yoga studio down the street instead of the chain that just came to town, or a local grocery store or farmers market instead of the nationally owned grocery chain and gas station. This can be applied across the board to all the dollars that are spent on items that we all need all the time. Keeping things in the area by shopping at locally owned businesses and operations is always a better option, because it allows the community to grow and prosper and increase in wealth and capacity. There is no need for desolate down town areas where the businesses have moved on, this is a byproduct of consumers not paying attention to where they spend their dollars and instead going for the cheapest option.
