Experience the best of Bakersfield

Locally owned businesses offer us so much to love. This month for Valentine’s Day, we’ll be highlighting some of Bakersfield’s locally-owned businesses ready to make this special day a treat! 

Locally owned and operated businesses re-circulate more money in our community than chain stores and studies show that small businesses create most new jobs.

Small businesses strengthen our economy, culture and well-being

Why Is It Important To Shop Local And Support Small Businesses?

Why local?

A Smarter Way to Shop

Small and local businesses tend to select products based on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, which guarantees a much more curated range of product choices suitable for you!

  • Local products are more often customizable and/or one-of-a-kind

By buying local, you help create jobs for your friends and neighbors, contribute to improved public infrastructure, and invest in your community both socially and economically.

Despite all of our advancements in technology, specifically online shopping, there’s nothing that will ever quite compare to the in-person customer service experience.

  • We’re innately social creatures and sometimes we can really use the help of a personal shopper to point us in the right direction. 
  • Shopping in-store allows customers to talk to the employees and other shoppers and get advice about the best products for their lives.
