Shop LocalShopping on 125th Street in Harlem

The second annual Small Business Saturday is today. By shopping local you can invest more into your own community. When you spend $100 at an independently-owned business, $68 goes back into the local community. Only $43 goes back to the local community when you shop at a national chain. Locally-owned businesses reinvest in the local economy at a 60% higher rate than chains and Internet retailers.
