Shop Locally

If you spend $100 at a local business, $68 of that stays in your community. Spend the same $100 at a national chain, and your community only sees $43.  Spend it online and nothing stays home.

Local businesses create jobs for those in our community.  When local businesses thrive, they hire locally.

Sales tax is reinvested in your community and helps keep property taxes down.

When you shop locally, local businesses can afford to improve their buildings and surroundings which in turn help keep our community attractive and inviting to visitors and newcomers.

Most local businesses can order special items for you.  Give this a try before you head off to Lubbock or Snyder to shop.

Local retailers are your friends and neighbors—support them and they’ll support you.

When you buy locally you eliminate extra cost for fuel associated with your “out-of-town” purchases.

Local businesses donate to charities at more than twice the rate of national chains.  Remember the many donations, money and merchandise, the business owners in Post give each year to school, church and community projects.

Your business helps maintain local businesses which mean more choice, more diversity, and a truly unique community.
