As a consumer, you’ve likely noticed an increasing trend to “shop local”– encouragement to make purchases from locally owned stores, as opposed to big box store or online retailers. While our inclination might be to quickly order a product from an anonymous online store or buy from a national chain, when the price and selection are right, there’s really no reason not to shop local. There are, however, some good reasons that you should– like the people.
When you shop at Vann’s, a locally owned an operated business, your dollars are supporting your Montana community. The people who work at Vann’s are your neighbors—the people who live here and play here. They’re the people you see at the gym, the people whose kids go to school with your kids. They pay rent or mortgages on homes in Missoula, Billings, the Flathead Valley, Bozeman, and elsewhere. Some were raised here; some are raising their own families here.
That means when you buy your new refrigerator or flat screen TV from Vann’s, not only can you be sure you’re getting a top-quality product at the best price available, it also means that you’re helping out the people in your community. And that makes your shopping experience feel that much better.
They sometimes say that being an employee at Vann’s is like being part of a family, and in a lot of ways, that’s true. The employees here collaborate on assignments and projects, and most of them genuinely enjoy working with one another. They’re proud to work here.
So the next time you’re looking for new electronics or appliances, come into your local Vann’s store and talk with our knowledgeable sales people, ask questions, and visit with us. Thanks for your continued business and support!
