Supporting Local Businesses - Charleston

Embracing The Heart Of Your Community – The Power Of Supporting Local Businesses


How important is your community to you?  This little thought-provoking question hopefully gets you thinking about your community and those who help to make it so special.  In the community you reside in there are local businesses that are more than just places to shop, dine, or unwind—they are the lifeblood of the city’s economy and culture.  Our small locally run businesses are more likely to support the schools, the arts, and other community missions more than big chain stores or other corporations.  That is just one of many of the key reasons for supporting local businesses.  

If you are a locally-owned business it is important to align yourself with other locally-owned businesses that have similar missions and goals for the community.  When businesses work together and support one another the community grows stronger and becomes even more attractive to those who live in and visit your city. 

The Charming Community Of Charleston

Recently team members of AG Creative had the honor of celebrating The Scout Guide launch in Charleston.  If you are not familiar with The Scout Guide, it is a book that celebrates and showcases local businesses in an effort to bring awareness to them and what they can offer those in the community. The Scout Guide can be found in a multitude of cities across the country.  

AG Creative had an amazing time meeting other members of the Charleston Scout Guide.  Each one of them offers a unique flavor and charm that only those in Charleston can. From artful offerings to non-profit organizations and everything in between. We enjoyed mingling and learning more about other businesses in Charleston.  Here we share a little bit about those local businesses we had the pleasure of meeting.
