Advantages of small businesses
The media is full of reports about the excess spending and waste in corporations and the government. It can be overwhelming to hear this over and over.
On the other hand, your local small business is probably the exact opposite when it comes to spending and waste. Small business has to conserve, has to be watchful of all unnecessary waste and expenditures. So they can be nimble, lean and mean. (Just kidding about the mean part)!
So if you need to purchase something, keep your local small business in mind. When you get there, they will probably be very glad to see you.
