Infographics (2019 data)
Download these graphics to share on social show customers and employee the positive impacts that buying from local owned, BC-based businesses generates.
What are the impacts of buying local? For every $100 spent with a local owned, BC-based business $63 is recirculated back into B.C.’s economy.
How does that happen? Local businesses recirculate more of their revenue in the local economy. This translates to more local jobs, more donations to local charities, more local purchases (goods & services), more of the company’s profits kept local.
