In my hometown of Holly Springs, we are starting a Facebook Shop Local campaign.  The benefits are numerous, this pie chart explains it well.

The gist is for every $100 spent in a local economy, $68 stay for community donations, wages, local taxes, supplies and local business services.  A non-locally owned business only $43 stay.  That is a huge difference.

BEFORE YOU HEAD OUT FOR BLACK FRIDAY!! Here are a few shopping local ideas!
