PLACES TO GO, PEOPLE TO SEE!

LocalShops1.com/ events Lunchtime Speaker Series: We meet monthly for a delicious lunch and inspiring talks with the area’s top business and community leaders. Ca$h Mobs: Looking for a way to make a difference and have a lot of fun, too? Come with us as we “invade” a local business! Business Bootcamps: Our workshops will help get your affairs in order — legal, accounting, marketing, presentations and more. April, Top Local Chef: LocalShops1 and Intensity Academy present the second annual fiery competition, in which top chefs vie for saucy prizes! August, LS1 Birthday Bash and Small Business Awards: We’re planning some special surprises to spotlight local businesses as we celebrate our fourth year! November, Shopapalooza: It’s the biggest shopping day of the year and the Local Alternative to Black Friday!

United, building a better community The reason the Buy Local movement is thriving in Tampa Bay? It’s the amazing local businesses, shoppers and community groups cooperating with each other. After all, when we work together, we all win. That’s why our outlook is one of neighbors helping neighbors: a vision of shared prosperity. LocalShops1.com was founded in 2008, and the grassroots movement quickly caught on. Less than two years later we were named Tampa Bay’s most active advocate for small businesses. Recently we partnered with BALLE, the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies, one of the nation’s top non-profits dedicated to sustainability and entrepreneurship.

Why Local really matters!

Preserve our community’s character. A Big Box store in one city will be just like one in another. Local shops’ selections are attuned to our region’s particular needs and interests. Help local charities, local schools & local programs. Studies show that, on average, local businesses give three times as much as the large chains. Keep money local. Of every dollar spent locally, about 70 cents stays local. Of every dollar spent at a big corporation, less than 40 cents stays local. Cut down the jobless rate. It’s a fact: Small businesses provide more jobs. The Big Box store comes in with a big splash and lots of low-paying jobs, but its long-term impact hurts the community. A town with many small, local businesses employs more people than a town with a Big Box store. Ensure better quality & lower prices. It’s all about healthy competition. Having a healthy number of small businesses ensures innovation and low prices over the long term.
