November 12, 2014 STONE COUNTY ENTERPRISE PAGE 7 LOCAL small, locally-owned stores are going to go out of business and then all you'll have are big- box stores. In a small community like ours, the small busi- nesses are what make a place a home." City of Wiggins Mayor Joel Miles, himself a small-business owner, said a major portion of the city's revenue comes from sales taxes collect- ed in the city. "Gas prices are dipping so folks seem to have a bit more money in their pockets these days," he said. "With cooler weather and Thanksgiving just a cou- ple of weeks away, peo- ple are thinking about shopping." He said it was impor- tant that local residents think about shopping local first. "Shopping local enhances the quality of life in any community," he said. The SCEDP is offering promotional materials to its small business members as a way to support efforts to gener- ate excitement around the start of the holiday shopping season. "Several of our new members are already using canvas totes, wel- come mats, window decals and posters to promote Shop Small," Harbuck said. "We con- tinue to add partici- pants." This year, the theme Neighborhood Champions was created to show that by shop- ping locally, residents are helping the people that make things hap- pen in their own com- munity. Small business owners teach Sunday School, they are volunteer coaches and help raise money for activities at schools, and much more. "A number of researchers and organi- zations are taking a clos- er look at how money flows, and what they're finding shows the pro- found economic impact of keeping money in continued from front town--and how the fate of many communities around the nation and the world increasingly depend on it," Rowell said. Shop Small and Small Business Saturday are efforts of the SCEDP Chamber Division. The purpose is to bring attention to the impor- tance of supporting friends and neighbors who are small business owners.
