As we look back on the way business used to be, people bought what they needed from their own local communities. They depended on one another and bought and traded with each other to help keep their communities alive and working. Families traveled to town to buy fabric to sew clothes and purchased goods from the hardware store to fix things around their farms. The difficult travel conditions limited their choices and options. Most people bought only what they could afford unless they created an account at the store. Accounts were created for families who were known and they would pay it off as they could. Buying and selling centered on trusted relationships within a community and was a normal way of life back then.
As we look at the variety of ways we shop today, the options are almost limitless. The choices for something as simple as cereal are numerous in many of the chain grocery stores. We can purchase the same items at a variety of locations. We can shop at a chain store, local boutique or online across the globe. We can have a friend or family member pick something up across the country and mail it to us within a day or two. Teams and brands have numerous stores in a variety of locations. Many people buy and trade on local selling walls on social media sites, e-bay or other selling sites. Again the shopping options vary greatly.
Business is rarely based upon relationship any more. Few people make a commitment to shop or buy local to support the local merchant and help them survive in life. Even fewer consumers take the time to think through how and where their products are being made. Is the item a fair trade product? If it is made overseas, is it made with quality or does it meet the safety standards of American made products? We have become such a consumerist society where we want instant gratification. We are impulse buyers who rarely think through the ramifications of things. We want what we want, now. We often do not take time to research and compare one product to another.
Shop local is a growing trend within many small communities throughout the United States. Many young families are beginning to support and shop at local farmers’ markets for fresh food items. As they have become more interested in buying products in their own communities, they have realized the positive effect they can make within their own neighborhoods. The popularity of buying from small shop merchants is bringing new life to the economy of many small towns.
