Think Local is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization working to support and preserve locally owned, independent businesses in the northern Palm Beach County area.
AS LOCALS SHOP, DINE and HIRE at our locally owned business, it benefits all of us. The results are a stronger local economy. Economic studies show that local recirculation of revenue from chain stores is $14 of every $100 dollars spent. Let’s build our local economy together! Kelly Sturmthal, Original Board Member and Director
If you spend money with local businesses, the results are dramatic for our local economy. Local recirculation of revenue from independent LOCAL businesses keeps about $48 of every $100 spent right here in our community. This money is being re-spent locally in the form of payroll, goods and services purchased from other local businesses, lunch purchased by local employees, profits spent locally by owners, and donations to area charities. This makes a tremendous impact on our local economy.
