All Ohio Made Store Promotes 'LOCAL' Movement
The local movement is gaining popularity. My goal when opening Simply Vague was to promote local spending. I wanted to make it easier to buy local products by housing them all under one roof.
When you shop locally you money stays in your community and creates jobs in your state. For every $1 spent at local businesses, 45¢ is reinvested locally. Non-local purchases keep, at most, 15¢ in your local community. Shopping locally is often more affordable and promotes diversity and uniqueness.
