So the other day I’m at Harkins Theaters – I love Harkins, why you ask? You buy a T-shirt for $20 1/2 goes to Harkins the other 1/2 goes to Big Brothers Big Sisters – you wear it to the movies and you get a free popcorn. They also have a special cup that you pay $4.25 and its a Dollar $ for refills throughout the year.
But anyway to my point – there was a statistic on the screen that said for every $100 you spend with a small business $43 stays within Arizona if you buy from a large out of state company only $13 dollars stay here. So I was reading the Gilbert Rising Magazine (Free) pick one up and they stated for every $100 spent in locally owned stores, $68 returns to your community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures. If you spend that with a National Chain only $43 stays local.
