Thanksgiving leftovers are in the fridge, family is back home and the fall decor is packed away to make room for Christmas and/or Hanukkah festivities. You are probably starting your gift list.
It is this time of year that we like to remind you that shopping, eating at, and buying services from locally owned businesses is so important!
Did you know that when you spend $100 at a locally owned business, $43 remain in your local economy (versus only $14 if you spend the same at a non-local business)? It’s true!
These extra dollars circulating in the community are an investment in local job creation and preserving diverse and prosperous communities. This is a win-win situation for businesses and consumers alike.
The Root Salon has been a local, family-owned and operated small business for almost 15 years now and both owners are Phoenix natives. Their children were born and educated here and are also employed by local businesses here. So during the hectic pace of holiday shopping and dining, please make a strong effort to support your local, small business community.
Here are some of our favorites:
Sierra Bonita Grill A true Southwest dining experience and kick butt service.
Pubblico Italian Eatery Homemade pasta and fresh seafood that is hard to match.
Phoenix Ale Brewery and Central Kitchen A great local brewery and sports bar with a dog-friendly patio.
