It can be all too easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life, so much so that we aren’t always as conscious of our basic decisions. One example is about where we choose to spend our money, which is largely affected by convenience. It’s all too easy to shop at major corporations because of how prevalent they are in most communities. However, it’s important to note that there are countless local businesses that provide superior quality and service. When you’re looking to purchase equipment, consider shopping with an independent dealer. Here at Rental Ranch, we’re proud supporters of the Independent We Stand organization, which happens to be sponsored by STIHL®.
When you make a conscious decision to shop with independent dealers, you’re supporting locally-owned and operated businesses. But what you’re also doing is supporting your community, the economy, and the environment in numerous impactful ways. For starters, your neighbors, friends, and family members are the very people running these types of business. They genuinely care about the future of your community.
It’s also worth noting that small businesses make about twice the amount of donations per employee to charitable organizations than large businesses. The economy benefits from your support of independent dealers and other local businesses, too. Believe it or not, small businesses employ 77 million Americans. When you shop independent, you’re also contributing to a smaller carbon footprint.
If you’d like to learn more about the cause, be sure stop by your local independent dealer, Rental Ranch in Wichita, Kansas. We proudly serve the Newton, Andover, Derby, and Hutchinson communities in South Central Kansas.
