 Why supporting local businesses is so important

Participating in this program means supporting the heart of what makes our community unique. The purchase of a Think Fremont Community E-Card creates a pool of cash that local businesses in Fremont can rely on. Studies have shown that local independent retailers recirculate 47% of their revenue back into the community, while only 14% of national chains’ revenue stays in the community. More dramatically, restaurants recirculate 73% of their revenue back into the community, versus only 30% for national chains.

By supporting local businesses, more money continues circulating through the local community—this is achieved through a combination of profits paid to local business owners, wages paid to local workers, goods and services procured locally for internal use or resale, and charitable giving within the community. If you’re looking for a way to do some good or want to know how you can help the community you love, send a Think Fremont Community E-Card today! For more information or to participate as a merchant in the program, please contact Downtown Fremont Inc. at 419-334-8696 or kbilger@downtownfremontohio.org.
