‘Made in Minnesota’ keeping consumer dollars in state

In its 2010 Made in Minnesota report, MN2020 highlights findings of the effect on the state economy when consumers purchase from local businesses. One such finding from the report states, “Buying locally from independent retailers keeps 68 cents of the consumer dollar at home working in our communities, while only 43 cents stay behind on each dollar spent at chain stores not headquartered in the state.”

These local business owners talk about the environmental benefit of sustainability they offer compared to larger retailers and manufacturers.
