Buy Local and Support your Community

Shop LocalThe National Retail Federation estimates holiday sales will increase 4.1% to $616.9 billion. The average increase in holiday sales for the past 10 years is 2.9%. Wouldn’t it be great if lots of those dollars stayed in the Kansas City area to boost our local economy? Why buy local?

  • Your money stays here. Locally owned businesses tend to purchase from locally owned businesses.
  • Local business owners tend to donate more to local charities.
  • Most new jobs are supplied by local businesses.
  • Environmental impact is reduced.
  • Local sales contribute to the tax base and to city services.
  • Unique businesses create character and prosperity.

Encourage, inspire (cajole and pressure) your friends, family, and co-workers to choose Waldo,
Brookside, and Southtown stores and services for their holiday shopping!
