Locally-owned, independent businesses (our neighbors, brothers, sisters, and friends) are the backbone of our local economy and the foundation of Redlands unique culture. It is our mission to advocate and support local small business through the About Redlands website and social media network.
Of every dollar you spend at a local business, 48 cents stays in the local economy. Of every dollar you spend at a chain, 14 cents stays. Of every dollar you spend online, 0 cents benefits Redlands. Zip. Nada.
Money spent in a local business generates 3.5 times more wealth for the local economy compared to money spent in corporate chains. What does that really mean? It equals more funding for libraries, schools, safe and clean water, street paving, sidewalk repair, tree trimming and police and fire departments.
We hope you find your time well spent as you explore our city online from your home, office, business, or school.
