What Makes a Healthy and Thriving Local Business Community?

  1. Diverse and Inclusive Business Landscape: A thriving community embraces a diverse range of businesses, including small startups, family-owned establishments, and larger enterprises. This diversity fosters a rich, inclusive environment where different ideas, products, and services can flourish.
  2. Local Engagement and Support: The cornerstone of a healthy business community is the support it receives from local consumers. Shopping locally not only bolsters the local economy but also strengthens community bonds.
  3. Collaboration and Networking: Businesses that collaborate and network with each other create a supportive ecosystem. This collaboration can take the form of local business events, joint promotions, and shared resources.
  4. Adaptability and Innovation: A thriving business community is adaptable and open to innovation. This includes embracing new technologies, marketing strategies, and business models that can drive growth and resilience.
  5. Community-Oriented Values: Businesses that prioritize community involvement and social responsibility contribute to a healthier, more connected community. This can involve participating in local events, supporting charitable causes, and engaging in sustainable practices.
  6. Positive Business Environment: A supportive local government and favorable business policies also play a crucial role in nurturing a thriving business community.

Our Commitment to Local Economic Impact

At Thriving Oregon, we understand the profound impact that local businesses have on our economy. Recent studies have illuminated the significant difference in how local and national businesses contribute to our community’s financial well-being.

When you spend $100 at a local business in the Eugene-Springfield area, $68 of that stays right here in our community, invigorating the local economy. In contrast, spending the same amount at a national chain contributes only $43 locally. This stark difference underscores the power of choosing local.

Thriving Oregon is more than just a business directory; it’s a platform designed to energize and sustain our local economy. By spotlighting local businesses, we aim to circulate more dollars within our community. Every transaction with a local enterprise not only supports a neighbor’s dream but also contributes to job creation, supports local charities, and bolsters the overall economic health of Eugene-Springfield.

Moreover, local businesses generate 70% more local economic activity per square foot than big-box retailers. They are the backbone of our economy and the fabric of our community. Our mission at Thriving Oregon is to harness this potential and transform it into tangible growth for every resident and business owner in our area.

We provide a space where local businesses can showcase their uniqueness, share their stories, and connect with a wider audience. Our user-friendly platform is designed for both businesses and consumers, ensuring a seamless and enriching experience for all.

Join us in making a conscious choice to support local. Together, we can build a thriving Eugene-Springfield, where local businesses flourish and our community prospers.

Join us in our mission to celebrate and elevate the spirit of Oregon’s local businesses. Together, let’s make Thriving Oregon the heartbeat of our local economy and a beacon of community strength and prosperity.

Thank you for stopping by.
