10 Apr Why You Should Go with a Local Glass Company
At Amazing Glazing Glass and Mirror Company, we are proud to be a locally owned and operated business. It’s not always the easiest path to follow, but we wouldn’t do things any other way. We love being able help our neighbors when they need any kind of mirror, glass or repairs in Dumfries, Virginia and the Greater Washington, D.C. area.
According to a report from American Express, we have good reason to be proud of being a local business in this era of big box stores and online marketing. The 2018 Small Business Economic Impact Study reports that small businesses in this country are responsible for $4.8 trillion in GDP – that’s the equivalent of the third largest economy in the world.
In other words, small businesses make a big impact!
The report also found that:
- An average two-thirds of every dollar ($0.67) spent at small businesses in the U.S. stays in the local community
- Every dollar spent at a small business like ours creates an additional $0.50 in local business activity because after our employees get their paychecks, they go out and spend money buying the goods and services they need.
- Every ten jobs at a small business support another seven jobs in the community.
We were very happy to see that in another study – the 2018 Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey, which was released by the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) and American Express – a majority of consumers (94%!) said they value the contributions small businesses make in their community.
The impact that locally owned businesses like Amazing Glazing Glass Company in Dumfries, VA, have on the local economy is important, but there are lots of other good reasons for you to consider giving your business to small businesses in our community.
Customers like you mean the world to us. We’re sure that other local area businesses would say the same thing. Someone working at a big box store might say thank you if you make a purchase, but we truly appreciate it when you trust us to help you with your glass and mirror needs.
So, if you need a full-service D.C. glass and mirror company, we hope you will contact us.
