Shopping local is something that has actually become trendy over the last few years. It’s popular because people have realized how beneficial it is to their communities to make their purchases at locally owned businesses. People love to shop at small boutiques and eat at locally owned restaurants. But have you ever stopped to consider how much a large purchase like a car could help your own neighborhood? If a small purchase helps some, a large one goes much, much further. Buying a car in your own community has a reach that is hard to even fathom.
You may have never thought about it, but your local Honda Mission Valley dealership is locally owned, like most dealerships around the country. The people employed there are locals; they’re your neighbors and friends. Their kids go to local schools and they make purchases like groceries and other goods from right in your neighborhood. They put the money they make right back in to your community because they live there too. When you buy from Tipton Honda, you’re putting a huge amount of money directly into your local economy.
There are very few ways to make such a reaching impact on your community with just one purchase. There’s also another big benefit to buying local: the dealership is close by. When you get a new car, you usually take a few trips to the dealership before you decide to buy it. Then, when you do make a purchase, you usually have to take the car back to the dealer for routine maintenance for the first years you have it, in order to honor the car’s warranty. You’ll save yourself lots of time and money by buying a car from a dealership close to your home.
