The Power in Buying Local!

It seems to have taken hold in the psyche of the current generation of Consumers to "Buy Local". Here at Globe, it is our mantra and what keeps us in business (as Johnny demonstrates). Our organization, based in Grand Rapids has Over 800 members with over 150 on the Lakeshore alone. *see localfirst.comTheir sponsored events include social media conferences, farm to fork dinners and Street Parties that kick#%{*. I have been a committee member for over 8 years. I have learned a tremendous amount from my fellow independent business owners. I highly recommend everyone on Daily Optician to find (or start) a local chapter.
