There are many reasons why you should shop locally; firstly, local shops mean local produce which means that local economy improves, jobs are sustained and small businesses benefit from selling their goods; shopping local also means that you pick up brands that are unique and you can’t find them in chain stores; by shopping at independent shops, you are also helping the planet and becoming more sustainable.
