Why Support Locally Owned Businesses?

Local Character and Prosperity
In an increasingly homogenized world, communities that preserve their
one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character have an economic
advantage.

Community Well-Being
Locally owned businesses build strong communities by sustaining vibrant town centers,linking reighbors in web of econimic and social relationships, and contributing to local causes.

Local Decision-Making
Local ownership ensures that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions.

Keeping Dollars in the Local Economy
Compared to chain stores, locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share of their revenue back into the local economy, enriching the whole community.

Job and Wages
Locally-owned businesses create more jobs locally and, in some sectors, provide better wages and benefits than chains do.

Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurship fuels America's economic innovation and prosperity, and serves and key means for families to move out of low-wage jobs and into the middle class.

Public Benefits and Costs
Local stores in town centers require comaratively little infrastructure and make more efficient use of public services relative to big box store and strip shopping malls.

Environmental Sustainability
Local stores help to sustain vibrant, compact, walkable town centers-which in turn are essential to reducing sprawl, automobile use, habitat loss, and air and water pollution.

Competition
A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term.

Product Diversity
A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based, not on a national sales plan, but on there own interests and the needs of their local customers, guarantees a much broader range of products choices.
Springfield's Best has been a community institution since 1994. Our membership includes a variety of the most well respected and established businesses in southwest Missouri that are known for their community involvement and trustworthiness.

Springfield's Best encourages the consumer public to conduct business with these reputable, locally owned or managed companies that operate with honesty, integrity and ethical behavior, and to support the Springfield community by keeping their dollars in the Springfield economy.
