We are continuing our countdown of the top 10 reasons why we should all buy local.

6. Most new jobs are provided by local businesses. Small local companies are the largest employer category in America. As well, the more jobs we have in our local community means that fewer people have to commute long distances, which means more time and less traffic and pollution.

5. Public benefits far outweigh public costs. Our local businesses require comparatively little infrastructure or tax incentives compared to big box stores. They more efficiently use public services compared to chain stores.

Pittsburgh Gas Grill and Heater Company is not only a local Pittsburgh-area business, but we ourselves strive to buy local and small. Everything we sell was Made in the USA!
