In a small town like Beaufort SC with a tight-knit community, it's important to support each other; and that's no different during the holidays.

The arrival of the holiday shopping season brings attention to the importance of shopping at the small businesses that serve as the backbone of our local community. 

We support our small businesses here in Beaufort SC. They are the backbone of our community, and owners of these businesses are our friends, neighbors and even our relatives.

Supporting our local businesses is important all year long, but becomes more important during the holiday season.

When you shop at our small local businesses you’re making a personal investment in our neighborhood and community. In fact, for every $100 spent, roughly $68 to $73 of it returns to our local economy.

Money is kept right here in the local economy because locally-owned businesses often purchase from other local businesses. Purchasing local helps grow other businesses as well as our region’s tax base.

Whether you realize it or not, when you shop local you are individually stimulating the local economy with your support and in turn, helping shape our community’s character and even its personality.

Other than stimulating our local economy, there are many reasons and benefits to shopping locally.

It creates jobs.
You receive better customer service, which gives you a better shopping experience.
You receive the benefit of shorter and more infrequent lines at checkout.
It reduces the environmental impact on the community.
It puts taxes to better use.
You find unique products that you won't find in the big box stores.

People helping people. That's priceless.

Here at Century 21 Carolina Realty, we are a small locally-owned business as well. And we always support our community's small businesses, and encourage you to do the same.

Happy shopping!
