Business owners stress buy local importance

The economic development initiative in Door County is just one part in getting people to shop locally, according to two Sturgeon Bay business owners.   Jim Olson, who owns three car dealerships, and Davis DeWolfe, owner of Mattress by Appointment that opened earlier this fall, say the buying local message cannot be overstated.  Olson says the Door County Economic Development Corporation has done a nice job supporting businesses in emphasizing it.  He says buying local makes a huge difference.



DeWolfe says local consumers and business owners need to look out for each other. 



According to American Express, 93 percent of Americans believe it is important to support small business in their community.  Almost three-quarters, 73 percent, consciously shop at small businesses in their community because they don’t want them to go away.
