The National Buy Local movement has quickly jumped to the headlines as a way in which consumers can not only stretch their shrinking dollars, but promote the local economy in the process.
According to Glendale Pawn and Jewelry owner Stan Grossman, “Pawn Shops have been on the frontlines since the recession first began. We’ve seen the human damage that has resulted and we work hard every day to help people with their unexpected expenses as well as to save people a great deal of money during these hard economic times. People need to focus on buying local and helping the communities that they live in.”
Grossman went on to elaborate, “National chain businesses exist, thrive and contribute positively to the community because a franchise was purchased or it made good economic sense for the investors. Local businesses exist, thrive and contribute positively to the community because somebody had the courage, somebody had a vision, and somebody chose to fulfill a need within the community. With the vast majority of local merchants, it’s more than just financial; it’s caring about the family next door and it doesn't get more local than that.”
