Buying from small businesses makes a bigger impact than buying from a large global corporation. Typically, funds you spent at a local small business, remain inside the local community. Small business also employs 47.1% of the private workers in the United States meaning more than 60 million families rely on these businesses to support their families and put food on the table.

Unlike buying from a large multi-national, you also have the opportunity to get to know the founders of a small business like a food truck, cafe, coffee shop, retail business, or service company. Many of these small shop owners started their businesses as a hobby like baking, crafting, or painting. These founders put 100% of their passion, effort, and financial risk into their product and service.

If you have a chance to buy from your local community and support small businesses, please do so. Another way to help them is by spreading awareness about supporting small businesses through social media. With that, I have listed more than 250 captions you can use when posting about small business support on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Let’s get shopping.
