The Importance of Local – In Charlottesville

From the Nest Realty Group blog:

I was speaking with a client just the other day who said he was excited to move to Charlottesville because he noticed the wide variety of local restaurants and saw that as a sign that Charlottesvillians supported their local businesses. He said that his current town (which will remain unnamed) is chock-full of chain restaurants and there isn’t much of a local restaurant scene.

And do you know how long it took him to make this observation? Less than 24 hours.

Charlottesville has a flair and a feel about it that just exudes local. If you’ve lived in Charlottesville for a while, you’re aware of the ‘buy local’ push over recent years. This trend has definitely become more prominent locally andnationally in recent months.

On the local front, Scout Charlottesville has been on the forefront of the ‘buy and shop local’ push. Check out the ‘Charlottesville Scout Promise‘, which includes this:

My goal is to promote local business and help to maintain Charlottesville as a unique and interesting place to live. WE MUST SHOP LOCALLY if we want to keep Charlottesville unique.

So grab a cup of coffee from Mudhouse, a doughnut from Spudnuts and we’ll see you at the City Market this Saturday at 9….
