A healthy community depends on a healthy economy, and both completely depend on the local businesses in Asheville! There are a number of great studies out there that illustrate how shopping locally will stimulate the Asheville economy.
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.
"It's about the economy, stupid!" - James Carville
To us, supporting local businesses doesn't stop with the economy - It is all about creating a stable and vibrant community! Asheville businesses create jobs (tax revenue for schools, parks, roads) while offering diversity in the marketplace, with unique products and services not found in big-box stores or chain restaurants. Not to mention - these local business are owned by the very people who sponsor our little leagues, donate to our local charities, and volunteer for our community events - giving back to the community in countless ways. You rely on them, but can they rely on you?
RelyLocal Asheville is a Community Campaign
There are plenty of "local" online directories sprouting up across the country. Unfortunately, most of the other websites simply buy (or steal) their data from giant databases full of national chains, while selling advertising to the highest bidder (the national chains). Only RelyLocal is locally owned and operated by your neighbors who really understand what Asheville businesses are up against. RelyLocal Asheville isn't just a website - it is a community campaign to rebuild our local economy and strengthen our community!
