My Sales Managers now have their desks right on the showroom floor and work through your financing options so that we can speed things up and create an environment of complete and total honesty. Our knowledgeable sales staff has gone through Ford’s rigorous product training classes so that they can answer your questions. We also heard you when you said you needed a better deal. So we did a few things so that we could lower our overall expenses and sell you our Ford trucks and cars at a lower price. We developed relationships across the U.S. so that we can get you the most for your trade-in no matter what it is. And we developed relationships with several credit unions and national banks to get you the very best terms on financing.

cott Johnson, Rexburg’s economic development director, said the concept of shopping locally is still a good idea even in a global economy. “We may not be purchasing local products, but shopping locally provides job opportunities within our local communities which keeps some of the money here,” he said. However some products and commodities are produced in the upper valley. Johnson said the Farmer’s Market in Rexburg is a good example of those kinds of opportunities, noting that the weekly summertime event has been very well supported by both vendors and customers. “People want to know where their products are coming from,” he said. “People are wanting to eat healthier and have healthier lifestyles, so people want to know where their food is coming from. We encourage people to buy locally produced products.” One of the things the city has been doing lately to assist economic growth is fostering business creation. An example of this is the Eastern Idaho Business Competition that was held last January. From a field of 20 teams of entrepreneurs, six were chosen to receive business development assistance provided by the city and numerous area businesses and economic development agencies. Each business plan was judged according to the viability of the business model and the effectiveness of the presentation. Johnson said several of these businesses are now moving forward effectively. “There has been kind of a mind-set that certain things couldn’t be STANDARD JOURNAL FILE PHOTO done in Rexburg,” he said. “We’re seeing a lot of innovation.

Local retailers are often your best bet MCS Special to the Standard Journal

hen buying anything from furniture to electronics, consumers are often inclined to turn to their nearby big box store as a first stop in comparison shopping. Although big box retailers do offer competitive prices, they may not be the best option for consumers trying to stay on budget or close to it. Boutique shops, local merchants and independent online retailers often offer competitive prices and better overall service than bigger chains.

Good things come in smaller packages Price is a major factor in where people shop. Millions of people turn to big box retailers thinking they will get the best prices, but a little research can yield other findings. While some bigger chains may offer doorbuster sales luring customers in with the “item du jour,” in general, prices on most everyday items are the same or

higher than other retailers. All it takes is an online comparison of a certain product to show the similarity in pricing. According to University of Utah assistant marketing professors Arul and Himanshu Mishra, it’s common to find similar pricing on most items in many big box stores. Therefore, these retailers use bigticket items to attract customers, who then just stay in the store to get the remaining higher-margin items and accessories on their lists. Shopping in smaller stores or independent online retailers also may be preferable to many consumers. The trend is to revitalize “Main Street America” by shopping smaller retailers and Mom & Pop establishments. Some companies actually offer incentives to do so. During the 2010 holiday season, American Express credited a portion of customers’ accounts on items purchased at small businesses on the Saturday after Black Friday. There is a new initiative to rename that day “Small Business Saturday” in an effort to encour-

Local retailers are often your best bet (cont.)

Continued from page 16 apart from big box retailers is their dedication to service and providing customers with extensive product information, including customer product reviews, to help them make an informed decision. The company offers knowledgeable product specialists based in the U.S. that can help shoppers find just what they’re looking for. The site offers a diversity of merchandise that generally surpasses big box retailers.

Smaller crowds fewer hassles

and

Another advantage to shopping smaller retailers or even online is that shoppers don’t have to drive long distances, fight crowds, endure long lines, or hunt for parking spots, making for a stress-free shopping experience that’s also smart from an environmental standpoint. Because of a more special-

ized selection, dedicated product specialists also may be more knowledgeable about the stock and functionality of certain items.

Local gives more back A September 2009 study in Civic Economics titled “Thinking Outside the Box: A Report on Independent Merchants and the Local Economy,” reviewed financial data from 15 locally owned businesses in New Orleans and compared these stores’ impact on the local economy to that of an average Super Target (R) store. The study found that only 16 percent of the money spent at a SuperTarget stays in the local economy. In contrast, the local retailers returned more than 32 percent of their revenue to the local economy. In many cases, local businesses also shop local, equipping their stores and building their Web sites with resources from other local companies.
