Buying Locally = Benefits Locally

The impact of choosing to buy locally made products – be that food, cleaning supplies, and even the framing services you require, is much larger than it may first seem. The support of local jobs is a crucial factor, however, people often fail to appreciate the host of other benefits in their decision to buy local.

Best Framing Can Be Found Locally at SF Framing

Buying Locally – Benefits Locally

Studies prove that when people buy locally, double the amount of money stays within the community because of a local economic multiplier effect. Money spent on locally produced items (like your picture frames) largely flows to other local goods and services, like components and supplies, employment, utilities and so on, purchased to support what we produce and the employees within the community who make these products. And so the cycle continues. Further to this, local spending actually increases the velocity of money through the economy – the more money that passes through more hands gives more people the ability to enjoy the benefit of that money. That’s why supporting suppliers in your local Bay Area community – like SF Framing – means so much!

Supports local employment

The benefits to local employment are multiplied when you support SF Framing. Purchasing local products like our picture framing services supports not only the jobs of those who make and market our products, but also has a halo effect on the broader community in which our business operates. For example, many other local businesses sell their products and services to us (office supplies, cleaning supplies and energy). Plus employees spend their earnings locally on food, housing, education and more – therefore supporting other local businesses along the way.

Benefits local government

Put simply, companies like SF Framing who generate sales and profit in the Bay Area, pay taxes in the Bay Area. These taxes are then spent by the Government in local communities on critical initiatives such as new infrastructure, services and other important initiatives for our county. You simply don’t get these benefits when choosing products from big box stores, multinational and out-of-state corporations.

Environmental benefits

When you purchase an SF Framing product, you can be confident that in most cases world-leading environmental standards are implemented during its manufacture.
