Holiday Shopping Guide

Holiday Shopping Guide From Utah StoriesWelcome to our second annual holiday shopping guide. Utah Stories has carefully selected our favorite places to shop for the holiday season throughout our various community shopping centers around Salt Lake City.

Let’s get past all the touchy-feely reasons why it is a good idea to patronize local businesses and let’s examine the facts: the best way you can ensure your sovereignty and strengthen your voice in your community is to patronize locally owned businesses.

Just how do we reach this conclusion? Not only do homegrown businesses carry more locally made products, which are generally higher quality and more unique, but when we choose to buy local the economic impact is 70% greater than if we buy from a chain store. Dollars trickle down and are passed through more hands around us instead of going to shareholders or overseas.

Also, as we point out in this issue, when we have local businesses in our marketplace, we all benefit because of our shared concerns and common debate. Debates over how our communities are shaped and formed should remain a local issue. Supporting locals over corporate chains ensures that our community government and the growth of our cities is conducted by locals for locals, instead of by Wal-Mart, McDonalds, Burger King, The Gap and Victoria’s Secret for them and their shareholders. It is an important choice you can make. Your purchases have even more power than your vote. Choose wisely, and choose the best. Utah Stories has chosen to represent the best of local Utah. Patronize them and tell them you found them in Utah Stories.
