50 - if half (50%) of the employed population spent $50 each month in locally owned independent businesses, it would generate more than $42.6 billion dollars in revenue. For $50, at Exotic Flowers in Roslindale, you could buy 50 stems of tulips and make fifty people happy or one person ecstatic. Imagine the positive impact if 3/4 of the employed population did that.

Boston Eye Candy68 - For every $100 spent in locally independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures. So if you buy a $100 flower arrangement at Exotic Flowers in Roslindale; $68 of that goes back to Roslindale, Dorchester, Mattapan, Hyde Park and Boston. If you spend that on a national chain, only $43 stays here. So if you have gardening needs and spend $100 at Home Depot versus Exotic Flowers, then $25 goes out of our community. If you spend that $100 online then $0 comes back to the community. $0 nothing to the local community when you call up ftd.com or 1-800-flowers for a delivery.
