Be aware of the impact of your dollars:
A local business returns dollars spent back to the community. Local businesses assist the community through a “multiplier effect”: one dollar spent at a local business will return five times that amount within the community through city taxes, employees’ wages, and purchase of materials and supplies at other independent businesses. In addition, these businesses will turn that dollar back into the community through school funding, social services, and contributions to local non-profit organizations.

Choice makes for a richer community:
Local businesses are located all over Carroll County. You can grab a biscuit to go, pick up locally grown produce, shop for unique gifts or household items, or choose to spend a day at one of the local spas. You can get your hair cut, have your taxes prepared, or apply for a mortgage at your friendly community bank or credit union.

These businesses add to the character that is Carroll County, contributing more than just goods and services. They offer personalized attention, add diversity to our shopping options, and bring life to historic buildings. And they pay their employees—and local taxes—with the income they receive. Each time you choose to spend your dollars at a local business, you are voting for the continued strength and vitality of our community.
