Why Buy Local ?
When Rands are spent locally, they can in turn be re-spent locally, raising the overall level of economic activity, paying more salaries, and building the local tax base. This re-circulating of money leads to an increase of economic activity, with the degree of  expanse entirely dependent on the percentage of money spent locally. The Local Premium represents the quantifiable advantage to the city provided by locally owned businesses relative to chain businesses. It is the added economic benefit of local businesses to a local economy. According to the Andersonville Study, Local businesses generate a substantial local premium, or added economic benefit over chain  retailers. This means more money will be circulating in the local economy, which may  lead to more public infrastructure like libraries and schools, and raising more money in taxable transactions to fund local government services.
