Why does it matter to shop locally? What difference can your shopping choices make? Well, local businesses like Running Excels account for about 75% of all new jobs and more than 50% of all workers in the United States. Businesses that are locally owned also invest more into communities than retail chains. The reasons don’t stop there. When you shop local, you are also helping the environment and saving yourselves money in the long run. By staying in your neighborhood to shop, you are using much less gas than if you were to travel to larger retail stores outside the community. You are also saving yourself gas money and extra time.
At Running Excels, we support our community by donating race proceeds to local charities and hosting community events. We strive to give you the best service and information possible. When you shop with us, we are able to give back to you. Thank you for your continued support!
