What is RelyLocal?
A healthy community depends on a healthy economy, and both completely depend on the local businesses in Racine and Kenosha! There are a number of great studies out there that illustrate how shopping locally will stimulate the Racine and Kenosha economies.
Simply put, more money spent with local businesses stays here (about 68%), where much less money spent with national chains stays in the area (only about 14%), and money spent online... well... simply leaves. Forever.
This Valentine’s Day, the average person will spend $116.21 on presents like cards, flowers, lingerie or dinner, for a total of more than $15.7 billion on gifts nationwide., If each person spent that $116.21 at a locally owned independent business rather than in a national chain, $79 would stay in their community thanks ...to local payrolls and taxes.http://www.relylocal.com/wisconsin/racine
