Why buy local?

‘Buy Local’ is a movement to educate residents about the positive impacts of buying locally. When residents buy locally as well as use local services, Northumberland businesses are then able to flow these dollars back into the local economy through their staff payrolls, inventory & service purchases, and taxes. As a result, more money is allocated for municipal services such as the library, emergency response, transportation, recreation programs, and overall job creation. Ultimately, the circle of support reinvigorates the entire community.
