Locally Owned

Shopping at family owned locally stores in your community can do a lot for the place in which you live.

In the mail recently I have been receiving a lot of different types of pieces of mail on shopping locally.  This new push has come because of Christmas and Black Friday being right around the corner.  This effort people and local store owners are making toward shopping locally is a push I love.  By shopping locally you are supporting the people’s livelihoods in your neighborhood and community.  You are helping their lives, but also strengthening the market in your community. 

In whatever town you may live you are bound to find a local store for whatever your needs or wants may be.  Whether you are looking for furniture or a candle just by doing a little research you are bound to find a locally owned store that will offer it.  For example, there is local St Louis furniture store that has been family owned and ran for over 100 years called Peerless Leather Furniture.  They are leaders in the leather furniture industry with only carrying the most sought after brands in the world today.  Brands such as Flexsteel, Fjords, Natuzzi, Natuzzi Editions, and Klaussner along with much more.  They know and understand the furniture market. They also know there customer base by being locally from the area.


Peerless Leather Furniture store has successfully kept up with the constant shifts and changes in the market.  Through their 100 years of experience they have gotten to know exceptionally well the customer base in which they serve.  Peerless Leather Furniture store knows and understands what the people in their area like, want and will buy.  Because they have this inside knowledge they have been able to capitalize upon it.  Being family owned and local has given them a huge advantage.
