Here’s my $5 – small change – big impact
Do you know what the effect would be if every adult resident in the Hornsby and Ku-ring-gai Council areas spent an extra $5 a week in a locally run business? Given there around 180,000 adults living here, that equates to $900,000 per week – or a whopping $46.8m per year. That would have a hugely positive impact on all of those small businesses – increasing turnover, allowing them to boost their product range and employ more staff. Research studies show that for every $100 spent at local, independent stores, $68 returns to the community, while the same amount spent at national chains results in $43 staying within community borders.
Small businesses support the community by donating prizes to school fetes, charity and fundraising events. As they say, what comes around, goes around.
