Consumers count on local businesses to add diversity to their shopping experiences­—and they know that supporting local merchants makes a big difference.

Ninety-three percent of reporting consumers believe it is important to support local businesses, and 73 percent intentionally shop at small businesses because they don’t want them to disappear.

That’s a lot of goodwill that business owners can benefit from if they reach out to their customers.

Local businesses can get the word out about their sales and services by reserving their space in the Daily Camera’s Locally Owned feature.

Locally Owned publishes every Monday in the Daily Camera and features a rotating spotlight of participating businesses. 

As a bonus, advertisers who act now will receive a free spotlight ad that will appear every five to eight weeks.
