Independent We Stand is a movement that started in the USA, all about independently owned businesses across the country reaching out to their communities and educating people about the many benefits of “buying local.”
This is as relevant in South Africa as what it is in the USA.
You can support the cause and help revive the local economy by shopping at local stores. Buy their products. Eat their food. Use their services. In turn, these locally owned and operated businesses will continually pump your hard-earned Rands back into your immediate economy by way of taxes, payrolls and purchases. Out of your R1 spend at an independently owned company, more money goes back into your local community than the Rand spent at the national chain store. And here we don't even talk about the internationally owned chain stores.
This means more money for roads, schools, services and new jobs in your city & community.
Independent We Stand recognizes all socially responsible businesses, both large and small. The movement focuses on helping the little guys not just survive, but thrive…and all the while helping them to contribute to their community.
Small business owners think money spent in your community should largely stay there, not always go home with strangers who hail from heaven knows where.
These locals aren’t just “moms and pops.” They’re all about the people who make your city a wonderful place to live. They’re involved in your community.
Our company, like many other independently owned businesses, offer back-up support for products we sell. We sell top brands, and offer great deals. We assemble all machinery, and test it before you have to use it. We sell spare parts and accessories. We service the units and do warranty repairs.And when it's time to replace your machine, or expand your range, we offer you the correct advice for your specific needs.
We are dependent on the local community's support. When business is bad in Pretoria or Gauteng, we can't rely on profits created in other areas. We can't "close down" or retrench staff in an area. During the recession, we never retrenched staff. We supported our staff, and they in turn kept on spending their income locally. We pay our taxes locally. We support the local community. And we are proudly doing so.
It’s time “Shop Local” and help get the economy back on track. In a way, consumers ‘vote’ for the kind of community they want to live in when they go shopping.
Don't ignore the long-term gain of buying local!
