Buying locally WILL strengthen our Tacoma economy, it will allow us to invest in our community and reduce our environmental impact. Many times we will receive better service with a small, locally owned business. And, we can put our taxes to good use. Local businesses require comparatively little infrastructure investment and make more efficient use of public services as compared to nationally owned stores entering the community.
Here's a Few Ways I Buy Local in Tacoma: I buy a lot of our produce at the farmers market or Harbor Greens, my milk & cheese from Smith Brothers, sports equipment at Playback Sports and my clothes at Megs and Mo's in the Proctor District.
