Unique, locally-owned businesses keep the spirit of independence alive in the Twin Cities, and create more jobs per dollar than the big chains. In fact, multiple studies have shown that each dollar spent at locally-owned, independent businesses generate at least three times more direct local economic benefit than absentee-owned chains, on average (Institute for Local Self Reliance). Shifting just a fraction of our shopping dollars to local independents can create a huge cumulative impact.
