Why buying Local?

Buying local has always been my priority and should be everyone's. It is important for our own economy and people. It will reduce our dependence on imports and make us self sufficient, creating employment and increasing the domestic wealth. I manifest this priority whenever I go to the market, my first question yo the seller is show me some local brands of the product. I also encourage my friends and family to use domestically produced goods. Whenever I buy such local products I put good review about them in public. I am ready to pay more on average for local products if the price difference is not high.

Is buying local a priority to me when making a purchase?

Sometimes I deviate from the same and buy products that are not local. This happens when such products are either not produced domestically or the quality of the domestic product is too low. I sometimes also deviate because of large price differences between imported and domestic products.

• What does Buying Local mean from the perspective of marketing?

Buying local is more than buying something from local business. It is somewhere keeping job opportunities in our community, supporting and building strong and vibrant local society

• How to determine what local means ??

: In my opinion local does not mean everything which is available in our locally or in local supermarket. Generally supermarkets and other stores sell products which are global and are rarely local

The term local should be associated with a product which has been produced locally, using local resources and manpower which helps in upliftment of the local society

  1. I loved reading your post about why people should buy local. I agree with your idea that we often rely on other countries for our needs and forget to buy from our own. I think it's important to buy from people who support our community and are doing business in our country.psilocybin capsules for sale
