Why Shop Local?
Supporting the Local Economy. Small, local businesses are the backbone of La Palma's economy. That's why shopping locally strengthens us all.
Support Your Police Department. By doing your shopping in town, you help fund your local police department.
Invest in our City. 100% of local sales tax goes to public safety, community events, recreation programs, and parks.
Supporting Community Events and Resources. By shopping in La Palma, you are supporting the community events (e.g Concerts in the Park) and resources (e.g. senior services).
Creating Jobs. 64% of all new jobs are created by small businesses like those in La Palma.
Creating a Sense of Community. Shopping at a La Palma business gives you an opportunity to better connect with other members of your community.
Good For the Environment. Shopping locally helps to reduce the use of fossil fuels. Local stores help sustain vibrant, walkable communities, which are essential to reducing sprawl, auto use, and air & water pollution.
La Palma is the place to do your shopping!
