BUY LOCAL, YOUR COMMUNITY WILL THANK YOU
Local isn’t just a place on a map. It’s people: your neighbors and their families, their businesses, farms, nonprofits, events, and recreational venues. Local is a community and all of the opportunities we create together and challenges we work to overcome.
When you choose New York Sash, your money goes back into the community. Here are some of the ways that New York Sash gives back:
When you’re in the market for any product, including home improvements, you may be tempted to check out big box stores such as Lowe’s and Home Depot. They may have competitive prices, but did you know that for every $100 you spend at a non-locally owned business, $57 leaves the community?

According to Local First, a nonprofit organization that celebrates independent, locally owned businesses:
Significantly more money recirculates when consumers choose to support our locally owned businesses. Unlike their national competition, locally owned businesses regularly purchase from other local retailers, manufacturers, service providers. Supporting our locally owned businesses is critical in growing a strong economy and tax base.
