Why does buying locally matter?

There is no benefit to your community when you buy online, or travel in search of lower prices. Online retailers pay no taxes to your local government, and hire no staff in your town. When you buy from a local business, you’re helping to keep that business in your home town. When you buy out of town, the money or time you spent is gone from your community.
