                         Everything You Need From Your Sullivan Area Local Businesses
                              Did You Know?
                             When you shop locally owned businesses, your money is re-circulated over and over
                              and creates up to 75% more tax revenue to our community and state.
                             Independent businesses raise the standard of living in your community because they
                              take their profits and buy products and services from other local businesses, thus cre-
                              ating more and more tax revenues needed for the community to thrive.
                             Independent businesses are unique enterprises that contribute to the character of our
                              community by offering a more diverse selection of goods and services.
                             Independent businesses provide meaningful service with a personal touch. It matters
                              to them that you are satisfied and will come back again.
