Pamper yourself in Uptown

"Meeting shop owners recently in uptown Westerville, I found the vibe fantastic.
They're thrilled about what looks like a resurgence in their corner of central Ohio. "

Kristy Eckert, Columbus Dispatch

"I loved reading every word (enewsletter).  I am going to forward this to all new residents that I help find a home in Westerville.  This is the Westerville I enjoy talking about. You and your group are adding so much to our UPTOWN. Uptown is coming alive!  
Again, thank you.

Top Ten Reasons to Shop Local
(adapted from http://www.staylocal.org/facts/why/)

FACEBOOK - Uptown Merchants - Shopuptown

1. Protect Local Character and Prosperity
By choosing to support locally owned businesses, you help maintain Westerville's diversity and distinctive flavor.

2. Community Well-Being
Locally owned businesses build strong neighborhoods by sustaining communities, linking neighbors, and by contributing more to local causes.

3. Local Decision Making Local ownership means that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions.

4. Keeping Dollars in the Local Economy. Your dollars spent in locally-owned businesses have three times the impact on your community as dollars spent at national chains. When shopping locally, you simultaneously create jobs, fund more city services through sales tax, invest in neighborhood improvement and promote community development.

5. Job and Wages
Locally owned businesses create more jobs locally and, in some sectors, provide better wages and benefits than chains do.

6. Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurship fuels America’s economic innovation and prosperity, and serves as a key means for families to move out of low-wage jobs and into the middle class.

7. Public Benefits and Costs
Local stores in town centers require comparatively little infrastructure and make more efficient use of public services relative to big box stores and strip shopping malls.

8. Environmental Sustainability
Local stores help to sustain vibrant, compact, walkable town centers-which in turn are essential to reducing sprawl, automobile use, habitat loss, and air and water pollution.

9. Competition
A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term.

10. Product Diversity
A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based, not on a national sales plan, but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, guarantees a much broader range of product choices.
