Top Ten Reasons to Shop Madison
#1. It's fast, convenient, and fun to shop in town!
#2. Local businesses support Madison non-profits and donate to our sports, schools and other organizations.
#3. builds community. I see my neighbors when I shop downtown.
#4. great service. Our merchants are knowledgeable and passionate... and they know me! You don't get that on the Internet or in large chain stores.
#5. unique character. The businesses in town help give Madison its identity and personality.
#6. parking? It's not that bad. I can park a lot closer to the stores in town than I can at the mall.
#7. Shopping locally is better for the environment.
#8. It lowers our taxes and keeps schools funded.
#9. money spent local stays local. For every $100 I spend here, $68 goes to our community. That doesn't happen when I buy online or at the big box stores.*
#10. I want to be sustainable and think long term. My hometown is more important to me than a cheap pair of socks!
