As everyone knows, the COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly affected small businesses like SF Framing. With the closure of thousands of local businesses, everyone is beginning to question how and where they purchase their food, cleaning supplies, and even framing services. The impact of that choice is much larger than it may first seem.
At SF Framing, we support our local community. Naturally, the support of local jobs is a crucial factor – when people buy locally, they help create jobs for teachers, parents, and many other essential workers. However, people often fail to appreciate the host of other benefits in their decision to buy local. Buying from a locally owned businesses helps conserve energy and resources in the form of less fuel for transportation and less packaging.
Studies prove that when people buy locally, it doubles the amount of money that stays within the community because of a local economic multiplier effect. 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 small businesses in your local Bay Area community – like SF Framing – means so much!
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.
We work with our clients to carefully understand their artwork and project scope. When you purchase an SF Framing product, you can be confident that in most cases world-leading environmental standards are implemented during its manufacture.
