The Boomerang Dollar

On average, for every dollar spent at a local small business, 42 cents flows back into the local community. We call it the Boomerang Dollar effect.

The money is primarily reinvested as salaries to local residents (27%) and payments to local suppliers (12%). The remaining 3% of small business community spend is used to support charities, schools and sponsorships.
