Whatcom County local independant businesses rank high

The local newspaper, Bellingham Herald has an article titled “County ranked No. 2 in U.S. for vitality of indie retailers”.  What this means is residents know that it is better to deal with local companies than multi-nationals. 

Local shops, contractors and suppliers care whether you, the customer, are happy with your purchase or service.  For the most part, multi-national retailers only care about the bottom line – did they make a profit from their transaction with you? 

Local businesses want you to come back, they need you to be a satisfied customer, and they also know what locals want in a product or service.  So they will work hard to provide that. 

While we have a great many wonderful, skilled businesses in Whatcom County, don’t forget to do your due diligence in getting referrals and word of mouth recommendations, just to be on the safe side!
